Police brutality lawsuit settled

June 13, 2006

Albany -- A police brutality lawsuit is settled, and the plaintiff's attorney is happy with the outcome.

Antone Moody sued Dougherty County sheriff's deputies after he was pulled over in 2001 on North Slappey. Moody claims the officers pulled his cousin, Casmarah Mimbs, from the car and beat him after he questioned the officers about the stop.

The case was scheduled to begin in federal court Tuesday but was settled Monday night .

Moody's attorney Chevene King said he is happy with the settlement which he described as "well over six figures."
