Cash Strapped Flint Owes Cops $3.8 Million In Lawsuit

The city of Flint will have to pay more than $3.8 million to a group of Flint police officers after it lost a long running discrimination lawsuit, according to a Thursday ruling.In 2006  a lawsuit filed by 48 current and former police officers charged that race was a factor in the formation of a special unit formed by then mayor Don Williamson. Arbitrators ruled that the city owed $2.6 million in damages to the police officers and $1.2 million in legal fees.Many of the police officers also sought damages against the former mayor, but the arbitrators ruled that the mayors actions weren’t enough to warrant that kind of punishment. The already financiall strapped city now must fork over another mountain of cash after the ruling.
