One of Eagle 8 files claim over botched raid

imageThe legal fallout over the City of Atlanta’s botched police raid of the Eagle may not be over, despite a more than $1 million settlement that is close to being finalized. (UPDATE: A judge finalized the settlement was late Wednesday.)

Chris Lopez (photo), who was recently dropped from his longtime bartender job at the Eagle, this week filed a claim with the city alleging $250,000 in damages from the raid and his arrest. Lopez, one of the Eagle 8, was cleared of criminal charges earlier this year, but was not included in the federal lawsuit filed in the wake of the raid. [APN]
