We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $260,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
The City of Livonia paid Christopher Lee-Murray Bey $260,000 to settle a racial profiling lawsuit.
Court documents showed that Bey and his friends, who are all Black, were followed by undercover Livonia officers Andrew McKinley, Eric Eisenbeis, and Megan McAteer, while they were traveling in a minivan to a grocery store on March 16, 2013. Officer McKinley stated that he wanted to follow the minivan based on “a hunch.” The officers allegedly did not know that Bey and his friends were Black at the time of the investigation.
