[ARCHIVED] Statement Regarding Reynolds Settlement

City Logo - small square

As a result of responding in the immediate aftermath of the Philando Castile shooting by St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez, the City of Roseville was named in a lawsuit by Ms. Diamond Reynolds.

The lawsuit alleged emotional distress and false arrest of Ms. Reynolds and her daughter.

On November 28, the City of St. Anthony approved a settlement agreement with Ms. Reynolds. The City of Roseville, along with its insurance carrier, League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust, is part of the settlement agreement.  Below is the statement released after the approval of the settlement agreement.




Cities of St. Anthony, Roseville reach settlement with Reynolds

The City of St. Anthony and the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust on behalf of the City of Roseville have reached an agreement with Diamond Reynolds, individually and on behalf of her minor daughter, to settle claims for emotional distress and false arrest.

Reynolds and her daughter were passengers in the vehicle driven by Philando Castile when he was fatally shot by Officer Jeronimo Yanez during a July 6, 2016 traffic stop. Neither Reynolds nor her daughter were physically injured in the shooting. As a matter of procedure, both were held by Roseville Police and Reynolds was questioned by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension following the shooting.

The City of St. Anthony paid $675,000 toward the settlement, with the City of Roseville and LMCIT contributing $125,000.

“This settlement resolves all civil litigation stemming from the incidents on July 6, 2016, and opens the door to continued healing within our community,” said Jerry Faust, St. Anthony Mayor.

Once approved by the court, a portion of the settlement funds will be placed into trust for Diamond Reynolds’ daughter and her future educational needs.

The settlement does not assume guilt by any of the named parties. Instead, the agreement allows the parties to avoid the protracted litigation involved with adjudicating state claims and potential federal civil rights claims, which may have taken years to resolve.
