TASER Settlement in Austin
Texas Lawyer’s law blog, Tex Parte reports that the elderly woman TASERed by an Austin police officer during a traffic stop has reached a settlement with the county. 72-year old Kathryn Winkfein had initially demanded $135,000 to settle her case and release Travis County from any future claims. County Commissioners voted to counter-offer with $40,000.00., which Ms. Winkfein accepted.
