City Council to Debate Another Strip Search Settlement

Friday, January 14, 2011
NBC 5 Chicago

Nearly two months after Cook County agreed to pay out $55.3 million in a federal county jail strip-search case, another lawsuit on the same subject is poised to pull another $4.2 million out of the city's piggy bank.

This smaller, proposed settlement will be put before the Chicago City Council next Wednesday and would end a class action suit filed six years ago by men who were strip searched prior to their release from jail, the Chicago Tribune's Clout Street explains.

The settlement approved in November pertained to a different suit. 

Commissioner Larry Suffredin (D-Evanston) told the Tribune that this new settlement should be the last one facing the city.
