A settlement has been reached in the case of Samuel DuBose, an unarmed black man shot by a University of Cincinnati police officer in July 2015.
The University agreed Monday to settle outside of court by paying the DuBose family $4.8 million as well as tuition and fees for all twelve of DuBose’s children, valuing over $500,000. In addition to payment is the establishment of an on-campus memorial for DuBose with an invitation for his family to attend and participate in Community Advisory Committee (CAC) meetings on providing police reform input, with an apology issued to the DuBose family by the University president Santa J. Ono.
