UCLA Paying BIG To A Supreme Court Judge For Racial Profiling

*UCLA is ready to settle a racial profiling claim by paying $500,000. The claim was brought against the school last year by a black judge over a traffic stop.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge David S. Cunningham filed a $10 million dollar suit against the school after claiming he had been physically assaulted by the UCLA police in 2013 during a traffic stop on his way home from the gym. Cunningham also claimed that he was detained in the back of a police vehicle because of his race.

Among paying $150,000 to Judge Cunningham, UCLA is using the remaining $350,000 to pay for scholarships that will be presented to the UCLA Black Alumni Association in Cunningham’s name. The school has also agreed to take action by informing the police of how to improve their interactions with the public as to avoid future complications such as this.
