CHICAGO (CBS) — Aldermen are expected to give final approval later this week to a $156,000 settlement in the case of two brothers beaten by Chicago police officers when the young men were mistaken for a pair of robbers as they left the liquor store where they work.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the City Council Finance Committee voted on Monday to recommend the settlement in a lawsuit filed by Michael and Adrian Ayala. The brothers have said officers beat them as they were closing up the 7-9-11 Liquor Store at 4848 S. Archer Av. in August 2011, mistaking them for robbers even after Michael showed proof he was the store manager.
The full City Council is expected to vote on the settlement on Wednesday.
