Attorney Derek Sells, who represented the family, said the agreement was “a sign that the administration is willing to work with people mistreated by city agencies and officials.”
Murdough's family members were not told the veteran was dead by any jail or city officials - they found out from an AP reporter who called them for a statement WEEKS LATER. Murdough's death would probably have been covered-up like Larry Neal's is had it not been revealed by AP. This was likely to avoid a wrongful death lawsuit. Luckily for defendants, Murdough's family contracted The Cochran Firm frauds as their wrongful death attorneys. Happy Veterans Day.
A white man who was traumatized by solitary confinement (not baked to death) was awarded a $15.5 million settlement. During the time Stephen Slevin, 58, spent in solitary confinement at Doña Ana County Detention Center, his mental and physical health deteriorated so severely that he spent hours on end rocking back and forth beneath a blanket, his attorney told the Los Angeles Times. "Slevin even wiggled a tooth loose so he could yank it out," Matt Coyte said. Compare Slevin's settlement to Murdough's.
Next, we wait to see what settlement, if any, is reached for the wrongful deaths of Chavis Carter and Walmart shopper, John Crawford. Their black families also contracted with The Cochran Firm, because they did not know any better.
SOMEBODY in media should warn my people about The Cochran Firm frauds. http://CochranFirmFraud.blogspot.com/
