City settles two suits with women abused by cops

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The city of Eugene paid more than $700,000 to settle lawsuits filed by two women sexually assaulted by former police officers.

Eleven additional women still have suits pending against the city. Dennis Taylor, the city manager, said Thursday he wants the suits settled out of court to spare the victims from going through a trial.
