Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2020

The City of Tempe settled a lawsuit with Trevonyae Cumpian for $300,000, stemming from an aggressive police encounter.

Cumpian, a Black hotel worker, was threatened and held by gunpoint by officer Ronald Kerzaya for several minutes. Officer Kerzaya was responding to a call about an armed suspect at the hotel where Cumpian worked. The hotel manager told Kerzaya that the suspect was White. Kerzaya, however, held Cumpian by gun point for several minutes until the hotel manager could confirm that Cumpian was not the suspect.
