Documents filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland show that U.S. District Judge Dan Polster has approved a settlement in the civil lawsuit filed against the City of Cleveland and Cleveland Police in connection with the fatal shooting of Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell Nov. 29, 2012.
The settlement was reached Monday during a nine and a half hour hearing and filed Wednesday.
The families requested a jury trial when they filed the federal lawsuit almost exactly a year after the shooting.
Attorneys for the families say they won’t release the terms of the settlement until it’s approved in Cuyahoga County Probate Court. A spokesperson said the City of Cleveland had no comment on the case or its resolution.
The plaintiffs were Elizabeth Goodwin, administrator for Williams’ estate, represented by attorney David Malik and Debora Bodnar, administrator for Russell’s estate, represented by attorney Terry Gilbert.
