Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2021

The City of Minneapolis agreed to pay George Floyd’s family $27 million to settle the family’s lawsuit. Floyd’s murder by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in 2020 set off national and international protests concerning police brutality and racial justice.

The payout is another act in a series of police brutality payouts by Minneapolis: it was only two years ago when the city paid out $20 million to the family of Justine Ruszczyk, a woman killed by then-police officer Mohamed Noor.

Compensation
$27,000,000.00
2021

The City of Minneapolis settled a lawsuit with Graciela Cisneros, who was injured by a police projectile while protesting George Floyd's death.

The city paid Cisneros and her attorneys $57,900. Cisneros suffered an eye injury when a police officer fired a projectile at her while she and her partner were walking home after a demonstration.

Compensation
$57,900.00
2020

The City of Minneapolis settled a case brought by Jerrod Burt for $170,000.

The case arose out of an incident where SWAT officers threw a flash-bang grenade into Burt’s car in violation of police department policy on the use of these devices. Officers did not announce themselves prior to encountering Burt and did not file a search warrant for Burt’s car. Burt had a friend in the vehicle who was wanted in connection with a nonviolent drug charge. Police did not find anything illegal in the car. Burt suffered severe burns when the flash-bang grenade exploded.

Compensation
$170,000.00
2020

The City of Minneapolis agreed to pay a nearly $1 million dollar settlement to Lucas McDonough, a man who suffered a traumatic brain injury from an off-duty officer.

Officer Clinton Toles, who was off duty at the time, assaulted McDonough at a bar in 2017. Toles identified himself as a police officer to McDonough. Two city officials who approved the settlement noted publicly that similarly situated settlements had done little to curb police misconduct in Minneapolis over the years and that settlement may have come to be viewed by officials as the cost of doing business.

Compensation
$1,000,000.00
