justice for Jermiah Mearday
Belleville News Democrat (AP):
CHICAGO - The city of Chicago on Monday agreed to pay a suburban man $1.75 million to settle litigation stemming from an alleged incident of police brutality eight years ago.
Jeremiah Mearday, of Maywood, will receive the money in exchange for dropping any lawsuits arising from claims Chicago police beat him in 1997 and then wrongly arrested him a year later.
Mearday's attorney said he was pleased by the settlement.
