ALBUQUERQUE, NM — The city of Albuquerque has agreed to pay $275,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who was Tasered by city police at least six times.

The settlement came after an independent review officer determined that the two officers involved lied to a grand jury and a federal magistrate judge ordered that their Internal Affairs files be released after concluding that they had been "involved in numerous city complaints."
