Judge Reduces $11.5 Million Judgment in a St. Paul Police Shooting to $2.5 Million

A judge has sharply reduced the $11.5 million judgment awarded to the mother of Cordale Handy, who was killed by St. Paul police in 2017.

In July, a federal jury found St. Paul Police officer Nathaniel Younce civilly liable for the 2017 shooting death of Handy, 29. At the same time jurors declined to hold liable a second officer involved in the incident, Mikko Norman.

Jurors later awarded Handy’s mother Kim Handy Jones $1.5 million in punitive damages plus $10 million in compensatory damages. But after the city filed a challenge, Judge David Doty reduced the compensatory award to $2.5 million.
