March 30, 2022

The city of Baltimore has reached a $3.5 million settlement with dozens of business owners whose property was damaged in the unrest following the death of Freddie Gray, ending a five-year legal saga. Nearly 70 people, mostly business owners, sued the city in 2017 claiming officials failed to prevent the unrest that erupted after the arrest and death of Gray in April 2015, despite warnings the city would experience violence. Gray died from injuries he suffered in police custody.
