LA City Council Approves $1.95 Million Settlement in Charly "Africa" Keunang Case

Tuesday, August 21, in a 12-2 vote, the LA City Council approved a $1.95 million settlement with the family of Charly "Africa" Keunang. The two dissenters both had ties to the LAPD. A proposed settlement agreement was reached in federal court on May 10, after a jury held two LAPD officers liable in the March 2015 Skid Row shooting death of Mr. Keunang, a mentally ill, unarmed, homeless man. HSR attorneys Joshua Piovia-Scott, Dan Stormer, and Shaleen Shanbhag represented Mr. Keunang's family in their claim that police escalated the confrontation with Mr. Keunang, which led to his death. The settlement monies will go to Mr. Keunang's parents Heleine Tchayou and Isaac Keunang, and to his sister Line Marquise Foming.
