Settlement Reached Between City Of Louisville, Breonna Taylor’s Family

A settlement has been reached in a civil lawsuit between the family of Breonna Taylor and the city of Louisville.

One of Tamika Palmer’s attorneys, Sam Aguiar, confirmed the settlement Tuesday morning.

He said the deal includes a “significant dollar amount” and more police reforms, but did not elaborate on either point. More details are expected to emerge later today.

Sister station WLKY reached out to the mayor’s office, but they declined to comment at this time.

Taylor, 26, was killed on March 13 when Louisville officers were serving a search warrant related to a drug investigation.

Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were inside at the time. Police have said Walker fired at police upon their entry and three officers returned fire. Taylor was shot and killed.

Walker was arrested and charged with attempted murder of a police officer, but later released.

Sgt. Jon Mattingly was shot in the leg during the incident. He and Detectives Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison were placed on administrative reassignment. Hankison was later fired.

Whether they will face charges is still undecided by the attorney general’s office.
