CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson addressed the Tamir Rice settlement Monday afternoon.

The City of Cleveland will pay $6 million to settle all claims. According to the civil lawsuit document, the City shall pay $3 million in 2016 and $3 million in 2017.

“This has been a very difficult time for the Rice family, in particular, but for Cleveland in general and the community; while we have settled the legal side of this.. there is no price that you can put on the life lost of a 12-year-old child,” Mayor Jackson said.

There is no admission of wrongdoing and all plaintiffs will execute full releases against the City of Cleveland and all individual defendants.
