Cleveland To Pay $540K To George Floyd Protesters Who Were Wrongfully Arrested

Last year, a dozen protestors filed a suit against the city of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, several police officers and several sheriff’s deputies, accusing officers of using excessive force during what was meant to be a peaceful protest over the death of George Floyd. The protest, which took place in downtown Cleveland on May 30, 2020, led to the unlawful arrest of several citizens — one of which says she was illegally held at the Cuyahoga County Jail for six days without charges. 

Now, as a result of the 2021 lawsuit brought against them, the City of Cleveland has been ordered to pay twelve protestors a settlement of $540,000.
