Alton Sterling protestors to be paid in lawsuit settlement

Around 90 protestors arrested in the aftermath of the Alton Sterling shooting will have reached a settlement in their lawsuit against the city of Baton Rouge, The Advocate reports. The settlement was approved following a vote by the Metro Council on Tuesday.

The city government, Louisiana State Police, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office will each pay about $25,000 in the settlement, according to The Advocate. This means each protestor will get about $230.
