Ohio family settles Taser lawsuit over death of father of unarmed father of 8

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 26, 2014 12:58 PM EDT

The family of a Cincinnati father of eight who died after being shocked in the chest with a Taser stun gun has settled a federal lawsuit against police.

North College Hill police were responding to calls about a fight and shots fired at a basketball game on June 26, 2012, when Corey McGinnis was stunned.

Attorneys for McGinnis's family said Thursday they agreed to settle the lawsuit against North College Hill police for $650,000 and a handful of Taser policy changes at the department.

Attorneys for the police department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Attorneys say McGinnis was unarmed and posing no threat when he was hit in the chest, against Taser's own recommendations that upper torso shots can cause cardiac arrest.
