The University of California regents will pay out about $1 million to settle a lawsuit with 21 plaintiffs over last November’s pepper spraying of students on the quad. That's about $30,000 for each person involved with the lawsuit.
Read our original story about the settlement here. It has the full breakdown of the $1 million.
After a brief response about the funding source for the settlement, a reporter in the crowd (not me) asks: "Ultimately, that's taxpayer money though, right? Don't you guys feel you're kind of taking from people who didn't have anything to do with this?"
You can see the ACLU attorney's answer in the video above.
What do you think of the settlement?
