From Fox6 Milwaukee:
A case that’s made headlines in Milwaukee for nearly eight years is over — at least as far as any court action is concerned. Frank Jude, Jr., who was brutally beaten by off-duty Milwaukee police officers in 2004, just settled his civil suit against the city for $2 million.
“I’m not a celebrity. I’m just a victim. I’m a victim of police brutality,” said Jude in a news conference on Tuesday.
Three Milwaukee police officers are serving time in federal prison after being convicted of civil rights violations. In all, seven officers were convicted of federal civil rights crimes.
