Cleveland Agrees to $2.25-Million Settlement with Family of Tanisha Anderson

After denying nearly all allegations set forth in the wrongful death lawsuit prompted by Tanisha Anderson's homicide (see below), the city of Cleveland has agreed to a $2.25-million settlement with her family.

Police officers Scott Aldridge and Bryan Myers remain the subjects of a criminal investigation. Anderson was tackled and held to the ground before she lost consciousness and died.

A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m.
