City of Topeka Reaches Settlement in Assault Case

A surprise settlement has been reached between the city of Topeka and two brothers who were shot by an off-duty police officer in 2008. The $300,000 settlement was approved by the city council. Acting City Manager Dan Stanley says the city could have spent much more money if the case had gone to trial.

The brothers, Daniel and Devin Llamas, had sought 47 million dollars from the Capital City for their wounds. The four off-duty officers involved in the post-St. Patrick's Day fight were never charged criminally. The Llamas brothers' attorney, Pedro Irigonegaray (eer-ih-GAWN-eh-guh-rye), says he hopes the city and his clients can now put the matter to rest and move on.
