“City Council Approves $20 Million Settlement in 'Code of Silence' Case”

$20,000,000

Car Accidents

The Chicago City Council on Wednesday voted to settle four more lawsuits filed against the city, bringing the number of council-approved settlements in 2018 to eight, worth just over $32 million. Unlike Monday’s Finance Committee meeting, where aldermen spent an hour debating the proposed $20 million payout to the estates of two men killed by a drunken off-duty Chicago police officer, Wednesday’s full council took its vote to approve the settlement without much discussion. Three aldermen — the 15th Ward’s Raymond Lopez, the 17th Ward’s David Moore and the 28th Ward’s Jason Ervin — voted against settling with estates of Fausto Manzera and Andrew Cazares.
