BOSTON (AP) -- A prominent Harvard University neuroscientist has settled a federal civil rights lawsuit he filed against Cambridge police and the city manager after his arrest on allegations stemming from a domestic dispute.
S. Allen Counter was arrested in 2006 on a domestic violence charge but was later cleared. Counter, who is black, claimed racial discrimination and a personal vendetta against him by a city officer in his 2009 lawsuit.
Court records show the lawsuit was settled in mediation and dismissed in July.
A message was left for Counter on Thursday. He told The Bay State Banner, which first reported the settlement, that he's "satisfied" but couldn't comment further because of a confidentiality agreement.
A police spokesman deferred comment to the city law department, which didn't return a message Thursday morning.
