The City of Aurora Agrees to Settle With Elijah McClain’s Family in a Federal Lawsuit Filed After His Death

The City of Aurora has reached a settlement agreement in the federal lawsuit filed by the family of Elijah McClain, who died in 2019 after Aurora police officers physically confronted him and after paramedics sedated him with ketamine while he was walking home.

“The City of Aurora and the family of Elijah McClain reached a settlement agreement in principle over the summer to resolve the lawsuit filed after his tragic death in August 2019,” said Ryan Luby, the city’s deputy director of communications and marketing.

“City leaders are prepared to sign the agreement as soon as the family members complete a separate but related allocation process to which the city is not a party. Until those issues are resolved and the agreement is in its final form, the parties cannot disclose the settlement terms. No amount was discussed in the recent telephonic court hearing,” Luby said.
