Norfolk settles 'Hula Hoop Lady' lawsuit for $65,000 [LINK]
The city of Norfolk, VA will pay $65,000 to settle a federal lawsuit brought after a police officer used a taser on the Hula Hoop Lady of Granby Street. Attorneys for Pamela Brown filed the suit, seeking $5 million, against a police officer, Nicholas G. Parks, who used a taser on her during an October arrest. The suit claimed Brown's civil rights were violated and that the officer used excessive force. Under the terms of the agreement, there is no finding or admission of liability on the part of the officer or the city.
I'd call that sixty-five thousand admissions. Any other interpretation is just spin.
'We admit nothing. Now, who do I make the check out to?'
