We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $152,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
Donna Miller filed a civil rights lawsuit against the Murray City Police Department, accusing an officer of racial bias. The City of Murray agreed to settle her case for $152,000.
The lawsuit alleged that Officer Jarom Allred pulled over Donna Miller, a 62-year-old African American woman, for not having valid insurance and, after proving that she did, saying he suspected Miller was intoxicated. Miller was held at the police station for three hours, during which time her car was searched, and was forced to take several sobriety tests, despite all tests, including blood tests for eight different substances, coming back negative. The city nonetheless charged her with DUI, suspending her license, and forcing her to pay to have her license reinstated after all charges were dropped. Following her 2018 arrest, she filed a lawsuit for the racial bias she experienced, and the city settled the case for $152,000.
