Chronicle on $645,000 Sabeghi settlement

The City of Oakland has tentatively authorized paying Army veteran Kayvan Sabeghi $645,000 to resolve his lawsuit over his beating by OPD “Tango Team” Officer Frank Uu during an Occupy Oakland demonstration on November 2, 2011. Rachel Lederman, Dennis Cunningham and Bobbie Stein represented Sabeghi in the federal civil rights lawsuit. The Sabeghi settlement comes less than six months after the city approved over $2 million in settlements to resolve two other cases over OPD’s repression of Occupy and Justice for Oscar Grant demonstrations, which were also litigated by Rachel and other NLG lawyers and legal workers.
