Atlanta Restaurant Owner to Receive $1 Million in Harassment Lawsuit Against City

A suburban Atlanta barbecue restaurant owner will get $1.7 million to settle a federal lawsuit claiming he was harassed by government officials and employees.

The city of Stockbridge’s insurer will pay the money to Arick Whitson, owner of Georgia Championship Barbeque Co. Whitson’s lawyers will get $534,000 from the total amount, according to terms obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The city is not admitting wrongdoing as part of the process and said it is settling to avoid “a protracted legal process.”
