Denver Council set to approve $265,000 to settle police lawsuits

Denver City Council will consider next week a $185,000 payment to settle a lawsuit filed after a police officer shoved a man onto steps outside a LoDo bar.

The payment, if approved Monday, will be made to Brandon Schreiber, who filed the lawsuit after he was shoved by Officer Choice Johnson while attending his brother’s bachelor party in July 2014. Schreiber is represented by the Rathod Mohamedbhai Law Firm.
