Minneapolis reaches tentative $200,000 settlement with family of Jamar Clark

 

August 9, 2019



The family of Jamar Clark, who was fatally shot by Minneapolis police in 2015, has reached a $200,000 tentative settlement with the city months after the City Council rejected a previous five-figure offer as too low.

David Suro, the lawyer representing Clark’s father, said the settlement was reached Thursday afternoon after closed-door mediation with the sides in separate rooms. “What this family really wanted wasn’t money,” Suro said. “They would like to see some accountability.”
