Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2020

The City of Louisville paid $12 million to the Taylor family in connection with the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor. Breonna Taylor was asleep at home when police executed a dubiously obtained “no-knock” warrant. When Ms. Taylor’s boyfriend fired a warning shot to dissuade the intruders, police opened fire and shot Ms. Taylor five times.

City officials for Louisville approved a $12 million dollar settlement to end a civil lawsuit by Breonna Taylor’s family. The settlement is one of the largest in U.S. history for a police shooting and carries several policy ramifications, including stronger transparency obligations and search warrant reform. The settlement does not include any type of apology or admission of wrongdoing by the city and the police, and the Taylor family is precluded from suing the city in the future for Breonna Taylor’s death.

Compensation
