ZAZ: he might be able to persuade the bankruptcy court to allow him to pursue a claim against the police officer.
MJMaloney187: 5 million for nearly a decade in the slammer? That works out to nearly half a million per year. That ridiculous.
Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: ZAZ: he might be able to persuade the bankruptcy court to allow him to pursue a claim against the police officer.Yeah, but that police officer probably has very little in the way of assets. Which makes a good case for police officers having to carry private malpractice insurance the way that doctors do.
OgreMagi: I just got a brilliant idea. Expand what I posted about this particular situation. For any case where the police are found to have been involved in misconduct, the payout is taken from ALL police officers employed at that precinct, even if only one or two cops are actually guilty. When your check suddenly gets fifty bucks lighter each month for the next ten years, maybe you'll stop turning a blind eye to the crimes committed by your "brothers".

The Dog Ate My Homework: Police officers are insured by the same polices that cover the police department.
haemaker: This was a settlement. Since Detroit is reneging on its part of the settlement, the case can be reopened and it will go to a jury. He's not out of the money, just delayed.The bankruptcy trustee will probably find it cheaper to pay him then to fight it in court and most likely lose big. He can put pressure to speed up the payout by reopening the case.
