(CBS/AP) FULLERTON, Calif. - The mother of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill homeless man who died after a violent confrontation with Southern California police, has accepted a $1 million settlement with the city of Fullerton.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the settlement was unanimously approved Tuesday by the Fullerton City Council.
In exchange, Cathy Thomas agreed to not pursue any further claims or lawsuits seeking damages for the death of her 37-year-old son.
The deal does not involve her ex-husband, Ron Thomas.
A judge earlier this month ordered two officers to stand trial on criminal charges in the case. Their next court appearance is scheduled for May 22.
The incident last July also prompted an effort to remove three Fullerton council members. They face a recall on next month's ballot.
