    City Att'y Reports Settlement In Grant Case (wrong man arrested as rapist): $2.3 Million

    (July 24, 2003) -- Pursuant to the CA Brown ("open meetings") Act, LB City Attorney Robert Shannon publicly reported at the July 22 City Council meeting that the City of LB has reached a settlement of $2.3 million in the case of Grant vs. City of Long Beach (in which the plaintiff prevailed in a federal suit against the city for false arrest as the "Belmont Shore" rapist...which he wasn't. Another suspect is now in custody awaiting trial.)

    Mr. Shannon reported at the July 22 Council meeting:

    I have a formal announcement to make pursuant to the Government Code. You'll recall that I announced that we had a settlement in principle in the Grant v. City of Long Beach case. I didn't have the exact figure last week when I announced it, so I'll just indicate that we have finalized the figures and the total amount of settlement in the case is $2.3 million.

    And of course the case was settled pursuant to the authority that the City Council granted to the City Attorney's office to negotiate some time ago.
