Congratulations to Saul Bookkeeping Client, attorney Thomas B. Martin of Martin Law PLCC on this recent decision. From Black Virginia News (for full article click link below):
BIG UPDATE IN LYNCH CASE — Wayne Lynch, the father of Donovon Lynch, have reached a settlement in the wrongful death lawsuit filed last year against the City of Virginia Beach. The Virginia Beach City Council approved the $3 million settlement agreement tonight. The settlement award is likely one of the highest in recent memory for an officer-involved wrongful death case in the city.
#JUSTICEFORDONOVON. 🌹 Sixty-four days after Justin Fairfax joined Lynch’s legal team, along with attorney Thomas B. Martin, the case has been settled for $3 million.
Donovon Lynch’s case received a great deal of press attention as he is a cousin of music superstar Pharrell Williams. Williams moved his Something in the Water music festival out of Virginia Beach to Washington, DC after the killing of Donovon Lynch and noted “toxic energy” related to the death of his cousin.
"There’s no amount of money—there’s no dollar figure that you can give to a family to deal with the loss of their child. It should never happen and that’s really part of the justice here that we don’t want this to happen any other family ever again,” attorney Justin Fairfax told 13News.
