Details of $228K police settlement still unknown

I wrote in Wednesday’s paper about the Baltimore City Board of Estimates approving a $228,000 settlement with a former police officer who filed a complaint against the Baltimore Police Department with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights.

The fact I couldn’t obtain any details about the complaint set me on a search yesterday to uncover some more information. One day later, here’s what I know: the Board of Estimates approved a $228,000 settlement with a former police officer who filed a complaint against the Baltimore Police Department with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights.

City and state officials I spoke with would not comment about the case, involving former officer Oksana B. Brown, because it was a personnel matter.

Shannon C. Leary, Brown’s lawyer, also told me she could not comment on the settlement nor discuss the complaint. When I asked if she was not speaking by choice or because of terms in the settlement agreement, she repeated that she could not comment on the settlement nor discuss the complaint. (Leary, of The Law Offices of Gary M. Gilbert & Associates P.C. in Silver Spring, was not mean or rude; she said her call was a courtesy and I appreciated her getting back to me.)

The only remedy left is a Public Information Act request with MCCR. I don’t expect to get any additional information (a commission spokesman could not confirm deny Brown filed a complaint), but I’ll keep you posted.
