New Tulia Drug Bust Settlement Could Top $1 Million

Counties left out of a $5 million Tulia drug bust settlement want their money too.

Amarillo and 45 plaintiffs agreed to the $5 million settlement earlier this month. Now, 26 counties and three cities also linked to the 1999 drug arrests are working on another settlement. Sources tell the Amarillo Globe News that it could top $1 million.

The settlement would resolve a federal civil rights lawsuit filed last August.
