Three years after the so-called May Day melee, the Los Angeles City Council is expected Wednesday to approve legal settlements ranging from $50,000 to $250,000 for some of the people allegedly injured by police.
Councilman Bernard Parks said six people looking for a financial settlement have accepted offers made by the City Attorney's Office.
Carl Stein, a cameraman for KCBS/KTLA, is expected to get about $250,000.
Expected to get about $50,000 each are KTLA reporter Ted Garcia, Telemundo reporter Carlos Botifoll, Telemundo cameraman Fernando Mejia, Telemundo producer Elisa Rojas, and Telemundo security guard Raad Elias.
KTTV reporter Christina Gonzalez, KTTV camerawoman Patti Ballaz, KPCC reporter Patricia Nazario and KTLA cameraman Thomas Mecozzi also sued the city, but are not included in the proposed settlement.
In February 2009, the council agreed to pay about $13 million to settle lawsuits filed by people allegedly injured during an immigration demonstration.
