June 17, 2004|From Times Staff Reports

A federal judge gave final approval Wednesday to a $1.2-million settlement of a lawsuit filed by 91 demonstrators, reporters and bystanders who alleged they were injured when police tried to disperse the crowd outside the 2000 Democratic National Convention.

U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper signed the settlement May 7, but gave members of the class action until Wednesday to object. No one did.
