Friends of Oscar Grant reach settlement with BART
May 22, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

Five friends of Oscar Grant, the man who was fatally shot by a San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer, have reached a deal to settle a federal lawsuit against the agency.

Jack Bryson Jr., Nigel Bryson, Michael Greer, Carlos Reyes and Fernando Anicete Jr. will split $175,000 as part of the settlement reached late last month. The BART board approved the settlement May 8.

The men filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in October 2009 claiming excessive force.

Their attorney, John Burris, said Tuesday the men are relieved the case is over.

The men were detained on an Oakland train station platform with Grant when he was shot and killed by then-BART police officer Johannes Mehserle, who was later convicted for the New Year’s Day 2009 incident.
