The parents of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen fatally shot by a
Ferguson, Mo., police officer, settled a wrongful-death lawsuit with the
city Tuesday, closing the civil case over a killing that stoked nationwide
debate about African American deaths at the hands of law enforcement.

.

The settlement amount was not disclosed, but U.S. District Judge E.
Richard Webber of the Eastern District of Missouri said he was satisfied
that the agreement was fair to the parties and complied with the law.

.

The gross settlement amount is fair and reasonable compensation for this
wrongful death claim and is in the best interest of each Plaintiff, Webber
wrote. He added that it provided a reasonable amount for attorney fees and
expenses, and said the split between Browns parents was proper.

.

The judge ordered the agreement sealed under Missouris Sunshine Law,
saying Browns parents could be harmed if it were revealed to the public.

.

Disclosure of the terms of the settlement agreement could jeopardize the
safety of individuals involved in this matter, whether as witnesses,
parties, or investigators, he wrote.

.

An attorney for the parents declined to discuss the agreement Tuesday.
Attorneys for the defendants did not immediately respond to messages
seeking comment.

.

Brown, 18, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson police
officer, during a physical altercation on a residential street in August
2014. His death set off a wave of outrage over the way black people are
treated by U.S. law enforcement, sparking unrest in the city and
nationwide protests that continued for months. A grand jury declined to
indict Wilson in connection with Browns death and the Department of
Justice cleared him of civil rights violations.

.

.

The lawsuit extensively cited a scathing Department of Justice report from
2015 that found pervasive racial bias in Fergusons 72-member police
department and detailed what then-attorney general Eric Holder called
routine constitutional violations by law enforcement.

.

The defendants denied the allegations and sought to have the case
dismissed.

.

Until recently, the case appeared headed to trial.
