On Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, the Chicago City Council voted to approve paying $32 million to settle police lawsuits. The council agreed to pay $10.25 million to Logan and $22.5 million to a woman who was raped and fell from a seventh story window after she was released from police custody even though she was clearly mentally ill.
