Detroit settles lockup death claim for 2 million dollars

On February 25, it was reported by the Free Press that the City had agreed to pay two million dollars to the family of a man who died in custody after he was denied proper medical attention.  James Stone, arrested as a parole violator, complained of chest pain for hours before succumbing to a heart attack.  The case settled on the eve of jury selection and while the judge was considering a default against the City as a result of its "halting, delayed, piecemeal...egregious...misconduct" in responding to discovery requests.
