The City of Minneapolis Reached a $27M Settlement with George Floyd’s Family

Mar 13, 2021

(New York, NY) — The city of Minneapolis has agreed to pay $27 million to settle a civil lawsuit with George Floyd’s family.

Rev. Sharpton, as an advocate for the Floyd family, was on MSNBC to discuss the settlement.

“You have to remember the human side of this. They removed a man who had children who depended on him. So, this gives some level of income that would deal with his life and what his life could have been for them. It is also a recognition of the city, of their being part of the problem. We must remember that Chauvin and these policemen were employed by the city and doing city work when they killed George Floyd.”
