$4.5 Million Settlement Reached in Scott Olsen case
Rachel Lederman, Jim Chanin and Julie Houk are announcing a major settlement today in Scott Olsen’s lawsuit against the City of Oakland. An Oakland Police officer shot 24 year veteran Scott Olsen in the head with a “less lethal” munition on October 25, 2011, during a demonstration in support of Occupy Oakland. The lead filled 12 gauge “bean bag” round shattered Mr. Olsen’s skull and permanently destroyed part of his brain. More information here.
