Officials settle UC Davis pepper-spray case

Current and former students who were pepper-sprayed during an Occupy demonstration filed suit

Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The University of California Regents reached a proposed settlement with UC Davis students and alumni hit with pepper spray during a campus protest that gained nationwide attention in November.

Neither the University's lawyers nor the plaintiffs' lawyers would comment Thursday on details of the settlement agreement which still requires a federal judge's approval.

A suit was filed in February by 21 current and former students who were pepper-sprayed during the Nov. 18 Occupy demonstrations.

The officers captured on a widely-viewed video spraying the seated students in their faces at close range are no longer with the campus police department.

The incident has already cost the university system plenty of money, including $445,879 to an independent consulting group that conducted a review of the pepper-spraying.
