Lawsuit settled for $165,000 for altercation between deaf man and Tampa Police

TAMPA – Tampa City Council decided Thursday to settle a lawsuit, out of court, with a man who says he was beat up by four Tampa Police officers outside an Ybor nightclub in 2010.
By a unanimous vote, council members decided it best to award Jacob Cowie, who is deaf, $165,000. 
Michael Maddux, Cowie’s attorney, spoke with ABC Action News just after the decision was made. 
“Obviously, you’re not going to pay $165,000 if you didn’t do something wrong,” said Maddux.
