Anton Black’s family reaches $5M settlement in wrongful-death lawsuit
(AP)—Relatives of a 19-year-old Black man who died during a struggle with police officers on Maryland’s Eastern Shore have reached a $5 million partial settlement of their wrongful death lawsuit.
Lawyers for Anton Black's family announced the settlement terms at a news conference on Monday.
They said the deal also requires improvements in police training and policies to be made by three towns that had officers involved in the deadly confrontation in 2018.
The agreement doesn’t resolve the family’s claims against former Maryland chief medical examiner David Fowler and the state medical examiner’s office.
