According to a press release issued by a family lawyer, the lawsuit brought by Georgia Tech over the shooting of Scout Schultz, a student of the college in 2017, has been settled.
The press release stated that as part of the settlement agreement, Georgia Institute of Technology will pay the Schultz family $1 million, which is one of the highest settlement agreements reached against a university police force in a similar shooting in Georgia. In addition to financial compensation, Schultz’s parents and lawyers also demanded other substantive changes to Georgia Tech’s police procedures.
“Georgia Tech’s efforts to amicably resolve this situation and the changes the university has made to protect the student population should be commended. We hope that the example of the university’s caring efforts will be replicated across the country. The students have already let us know. Because the LGBTQIA community is often overlooked, we hope that these positive changes will continue and that Scout’s life will change,” family lawyer Chris Stewart said in a statement.
CNN has contacted Georgia Institute of Technology for comments.
