Minneapolis settles lawsuit filed by demonstrator injured during Floyd protest

The City Of Minneapolis has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by a demonstrator who was injured during the protests that occurred after the killing of George Floyd.

Twenty-two-year-old Graciela Cisneros will receive a payment of $57,900 for injuries to her face when a police officer fired a non-lethal round at her May 29 as she walked home from a demonstration.

Cisneros’ cheekbone was broken and her injury required stitches.

A number of lawsuits have been filed in connection to law enforcement’s response to the protests that occurred after the fatal arrest of Floyd, including two class-action suits filed by the ACLU on behalf of protesters and journalists.
