Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/04/2014 - 05:15
By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) - Seattle will pay $45,000 to a woman who police shocked with a stun gun after stopping her for speeding when she was seven months pregnant, resolving a long legal dispute in a city under federal scrutiny over allegations of harsh and biased policing. Malaika Brooks sued the city and the three police officers who stopped her in 2004 as she was driving her 11-year-old son to school and shocked her three times after she refused to sign a traffic ticket and leave her car under threat of arrest. "After almost eight years of litigation, we are pleased to have this matter resolved," City Attorney Peter Holmes said in a statement on Wednesday, in which he admitted no wrongdoing on the part of the officers involved. The Seattle case developed amid a number of lawsuits seeking damages over the growing nationwide use of stun guns, which incapacitate people through a jolt of electricity.
