MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The man who survived a shooting by police after a fleeing a traffic stop has settled his lawsuit against the city of Memphis.
The Commercial Appeal reports Martavious Banks will receive a $200,000 settlement after a voluntary agreement between him and the city was filed in federal court. The original lawsuit had sought $10 million in damages.
Banks ran from a police traffic stop and was shot by a Memphis officer in September 2018. Banks was critically wounded.
Banks sued after an investigation showed officers did not have their body cameras activated as required by department policy.
