Unarmed Teenager Was Shot by a Madison Police Officer

A news conference discussing the $3.35 million settlement, which exceeds by more than $1 million the previous record in Wisconsin for a police-officer shooting suit, was held yesterday.

Tony Robinson, Jr. was 19 years old and unarmed when he was shot seven times on March 6, 2015 by Madison police officer Matthew Kenny.

A detailed analysis of the wrongful shooting can be found in the suit against Madison, and in the document presenting Robinson’s facts to the federal court, which are posted here and here.

Attending the press conference were family and friends of Tony Robinson, Jr., and the family’s attorneys. Besides his parents, Tony Robinson, Jr. is survived by five younger brothers and sisters.

Attorneys for the family are David B. Owens, Anand Swaminathan and Elizabeth Mazur of the Chicago civil rights law firm Loevy & Loevy Attorneys at Law.

Loevy & Loevy is the largest civil rights law firm in the Midwest, with offices in Chicago and Boulder.
