BOSTON. Nearly two years to the day that Emmanuel College student David Woodman was arrested by police and later died, his family settled a civil lawsuit with the city for $3 million.


“This is not a satisfactory resolution; rather, it reflects our choice not to allow anger to affect our family any further,” Woodman’s family said.


William Sinnot, the city’s corporation counsel, said “this resolution, in which there is no admission of liability by any party, is a fair and responsible resolution of this tragedy.”
