We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $10,000,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
Samuel Kolb was experiencing a mental health crisis when Placer County Deputy Curtis Honeycutt shot him, shattering one of his vertebrae. Kolb was paralyzed from the waist down. Placer County agreed to settle the case for $10 million.
Kolb’s son, who called 911 to get his father medical attention, did not claim his father presented as any clear danger to dispatchers, and that he was simply experiencing a mental health crisis that Kolb has regularly experienced before. Honeycutt claimed he shot Kolb because he feared for his life when Kolb stabbed him with a sharp object, but Kolb’s son testified he never saw his father attack Honeycutt and the deputy’s vest showed no signs of stabbing.
