Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Civl rights attorney Ben Crump calls Breonna Taylor settlement 'historic'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump said the $12 million settlement the city of Louisville is paying the family of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman who police shot and killed in her own home in March, may have made history. 

“I’m grateful to the actions of the city of Louisville today,” Crump said at a press conference Tuesday announcing the settlement. “And it is not just the historic $12 million settlement, which as I understand is the largest amount ever paid out for a Black woman in a wrongful death, killed by a police in America.”

The deal is the largest settlement that the city has paid in a police misconduct case, and Crump said it could potentially be the most paid to any victim of police brutality in the U.S. 

“I believe it may be the largest amount paid for a Black person in a police shooting,” Crump said. “It is certainly… one of the largest amounts paid out by any person in the way of settlement in a police killing in America.”
