Minneapolis reaches $27 million settlement with family of George Floyd

01:59

The Minneapolis City Council unanimously approved a $27 million civil settlement for the family of George Floyd, the biggest pre-trial award following a deadly police encounter in the United States. The timing of the settlement may be designed to calm protesters as the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former officer charged in Floyd’s death, gets underway. Chauviin has pleaded not guilty.
