Oaklanders who follow MOBN!’s posts know that Federal Judge Thelton Henderson had a hearing scheduled next week on the question of whether the Oakland Police Department should be placed in receivership. Yesterday the plaintiffs and the city jointly filed a proposed settlement of the plaintiffs’ receivership motion. The proposed settlement is available here.
More information about the case of Delphine Allen et al. v. City of Oakland (“the Riders Case”) and the Consent Judgment (the “negotiated settlement agreement,” or “NSA”) are available here, here, here and here. Discussions about what the settlement means for Oakland, who won and who lost, will occur in the days to come. But today, we will briefly summarize what the parties agreed to and what the Court will order if Judge Henderson agrees with them.
