DENVER - The Denver City Council will vote Monday whether to approve a $360,000 settlement between the city, the Denver Police Department and the plaintiffs in the 2009 Denver Diner case.
In 2009, police actions were captured on video right outside the Denver Diner, off Colfax and Speer. The claim of the suit was improper conduct and excessive force.
Four plaintiffs in the suit, as well as their attorneys, stand to receive $360,000, according to the Denver City Council agenda published online.
• ($44,453.33), payable to Ana Alicia Ortega
• ($44,453.33), payable to Kelly Boren
• ($43,573.29), payable to Kristal Carrillo
• ($34,453.33), payable to Sharelle C. Thomas
• ($193,066.72), payable to Rathod Mohamedbhai LLC
The two officers involved were at one time terminated for lying during the internal affairs investigation.
Officers Randy Nixon and Kevin Devine were eventually re-instated. Nixon was given a 30-day suspension.
