We identified 4 publicly reported settlements that resulted in $16,525,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
In February 2022, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors agreed to pay $700,000 to Dacari Spiers, who was beaten by officers in 2019.
Officers responded to a call alleging Dacari Spiers was engaging in domestic violence towards his girlfriend. While officers found no evidence of any attack, they beat Spiers with a baton and broke . The officers involved faced criminal charges for their actions, and Spiers was awarded $700,000 in court. A federal judge imposed sanctions on the City for withholding evidence in the case. The case is believed to be the first criminal trial of a police officer in San Francisco for on-the-job use-of-force. One of the officers involved, Terrance Stangel, was charged with four different felonies: battery with serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, and assault under color of authority. A jury later acquitted Stangel of the first three charges and failed to reach a consensus on the fourth charge, which resulted in a mistrial.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors agreed to pay $225,000 to San Francisco Police Department officer Brendan Mannix to settle Mannix’s accusations of department discrimination based on his sexual orientation.
Mannix alleges that he faced workplace discrimination and harassment for being gay. His sergeants repeatedly made derogatory comments about Mannix’s sexual orientation, leading him to sue the department in 2018. While the city settled the suit for $225,000, it is unclear if the sergeants involved faced any punishment for their behavior.
In December 2021, the City of San Francisco agreed to pay $2.5 million to Judy O’Neil, the mother of Keita O’Neil who was killed by a San Francisco Police Department officer during a chase.
On December 1st, 2017, Keita O’Neil was shot and killed by former officer Chris Samayoa, who was pursuing O’Neil for an alleged unarmed carjacking. After Keita’s death, Judy O’Neil filed a civil lawsuit against the city, alleging that Samayoa had used excessive force that resulted in her son’s death. Four years later, the City of San Francisco agreed to pay Judy O’Neil $2.5 million. Samayoa is currently facing charges for manslaughter, among others, for the death of Keita O’Neil.
In March 2019, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a $13.1 million settlement to resolve a police misconduct matter
In March 2019, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a police misconduct settlement of $13.1 million to Jamal Trulove, who was wrongly convicted of murder in 2010 and sentenced to 50 years to life in prison. After spending six years in prison, an Oakland jury acquitted Mr. Trulove in a 2015 retrial, which determined that two police officers (who have since retired) fabricated evidence and did not disclose exculpatory material.
