The Portland City Council has approved a $1.6 million settlement in the police custody death of a mentally ill Oregon man.
James Chasse suffered broken ribs that punctured his lung and led to his death in September 2006 after officers tackled him on a street corner.
The 42-year-old Chasse suffered from schizophrenia and his family sued the city, Multnomah County and an ambulance company in federal court.
The settlement with his family approved by the Portland City Council on Wednesday was announced in May. The family settled earlier with Multnomah County for $925,000 and a reported $600,000 with the ambulance company.
