Aurora, CO, United States

Nov 18, 2021 — 

Aurora has agreed to pay $15 million to Elijah’s family to settle the civil rights lawsuit. The settlement is one of the largest police-related settlements in U.S. history.

Elijah’s mother filed the federal civil rights suit last year targeting the city of Aurora as well as the police officers and other first responders who remain responsible for Elijah’s death.

The officers and paramedics who killed Elijah will soon be on trial. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to pursue justice.
