Councilors Clear Springfield Lawsuits

posted by John Baibak - 

Springfield's  City Council is approving more than a million dollars in legal  settlements that were previously reached by the city. 

 Included in the  settlements are  885-thousand dollars to four men who  were allegedly beaten by off-duty police officers in 2015.  

The alleged  incident happened outside of Nathan Bill's Bar and Restaurant in East  Forest Park, sparking two lawsuits which were both resolved with the  settlement.  

Other payments included money for a man who died from an  aneurysm while in a Springfield police holding cell, and a settlement with the family of a Springfield boy who nearly drowned in a city pool in Forest Park last summer.
