EPD SWAT Raid Settlement Made Public

Trial Date Set for Evansville SWAT Raid Lawsuit_04256860-159532

Federal records show the Evansville Police Department paid $60,000 to a woman who sued the department in connection with a SWAT raid in 2012.

The settlement was reached in May, but the terms have just been made public.

The settlement also does not lay blame or wrongdoing by either the police department or the plaintiff Louise Milan.

As part of the agreement, the police department, Louise Milan, and the individual officers are released from any further legal claims.

In her suit, Milan argued that her constitutional rights were violated when EPD’s SWAT team used flash bangs as part of a raid in June 2012.

The SWAT team was pursuing a suspect who was using Milan’s unsecured Wi-Fi network to threaten to kill police officers.

Police eventually arrested Derrick Murray who pleaded guilty to federal charges.
