08/12/2012 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)

Atlanta – Atlanta officials have reportedly changed the terms of a settlement offer made to a pedestrian who was injured during a police chase in 2008. As reported by WSB-TV Atlanta, the city has reneged on a $475,000 agreement reached with Wendy Lockett, and offered her a settlement for $100,000 less.

Lockett is quoted as stating to the news source, “I’m injured for the rest of my life… I’m still suffering from severe headaches, neck pain. I can’t sleep at night.”

It is still unclear why the city chose not to stand by the terms of the settlement. Lockett is reportedly ready to return to court in regards to the matter.
