City of Jackson, Mississippi Wins $10.3 Million in a Settlement With Insurance Company

The City of Jackson was awarded slightly more than $10.3 million after a lawsuit was settled with Zurich-American Insurance Group.

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba made the announcement during a mayor’s press conference Thursday at the Jackson Police Department’s Real Time Command Center.
