Cleveland.com reports the lawsuit filed against a now-retired police detective, Georgia Hussein, was settled Monday. The lawsuit claimed an investigation of accusations against Anthony Sowell was mishandled and allowed him to remain free and victimize more women. He’s on death row after his 2011 conviction for the 11 deaths.
Court records don’t show terms of the settlement.
City spokesman Dan Williams declined to say how much the city agreed to pay on behalf of the detective, saying the settlement hasn’t been finalized.
Blake Dickson, an attorney representing both women, also declined to comment.
