City of Cleveland Reaches Settlement With Department of Justice

Cleveland to Settle With Justice Department Over Police Brutality

The city of Cleveland has reached a settlement with the Justice Department, the New York Times reports, over unconstitutional practices—including a pattern of excessive use of force—the United States Attorney’s Office identified in an investigation last year. The details of the settlement are not yet known, but the Times reports that in similar settlements the Justice Department has insisted—backed by a court order—that cities permit independent monitors to oversee changes in police departments, including revisions of training procudures and use-of-force policies.

The investigation, which can be read here, found that the Cleveland police “engages in a pattern or practice of using unreasonable force in violation of the Fourth Amendment.”
