Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2020

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department agrees not to use tear gas on peaceful protestors.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department settled a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on Oct. 29, 2020 to end the use of riot control agents against peaceful, law-abiding protesters and passive resistors.

The case was filed on behalf of Indy10 Black Lives Matter and individual protesters, who were exposed to chemical riot control agents, namely tear gas, during protests in late May 2020. The agreement also limited the circumstances in which the department can use impact weapons, such as rubber bullets.

In 2019, Indianapolis agreed to a settlement worth $2.15 million to resolve a police misconduct case.

In June 2019, the City of Indianapolis agreed to a settlement worth $2.15 million for Gerald Cole, who was shot twice in the back by Officer James Perry of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, leaving Mr. Cole partially paralyzed.

Compensation
