Dayton Personal Injury Settlement for Family of Dontae Martin
Dayton Personal Injury Settlement for Family of Dontae Martin – Wright & Schulte has settled the wrongful death case of Dontae Martin, the man who was shot 13 times by deputies and killed in his car in July 2015.
The Martin family will be paid $900,000.
Montgomery County commissioners authorized the payment of the settlement at their meeting Tuesday. The settlement closes the Martin case “without any admission of fault on behalf of Montgomery County, the Sheriff’s Office, or the deputies involved,” the county said.
Martin’s family filed a lawsuit against the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in 2017 after a grand jury declined to indict the two deputies involved.
“The family is relieved its over,” said Michael Wright, the attorney for Martin’s family. “But they are still grieving. I don’t think any amount of money can fill that void.”
