As for the wrongful death settlement he says. Previously, the largest amount the city had paid to settle police allegations was $8.5 million.
Sam Aguiar, an attorney for Taylor's family, said the city's handling of the case has been slow and frustrating. Also, any officer that is involved in a shooting will need to undergo drug and alcohol testing. The police union did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The settlement could be announced as early as 2pm.
None of the three officers who broke in Taylor's apartment have been charged with a crime, but Brett Hankinson was sacked in late June for "wantonly and blindly" firing 10 rounds into her apartment.
Though no criminal charges have been brought against the cops who shot Breonna, her family sued the city and the Mayor of Louisville is expected to announce the settlement later Tuesday in a joint press conference with the Taylor family attorneys.
The three officers involved in the shooting, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and detectives Brett Hankinson and Myles Cosgrove, were placed on administrative reassignment pending the results of an investigation.
Taylor's death has been a flashpoint for protesters calling for an end of police brutality and systemic racism.
None of the officers have been charged with a crime.
State attorney general Daniel Cameron is investigating police actions in the March 13 shooting. Taylor was hit five times and died in her hallway.
Police claim that they knocked and announced themselves before entering Taylor's apartment, but Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, has claimed that he and Taylor had no idea who was at their door on the night of the raid and that they believed they were being victimized by attempted robbers. Walker said he called 911 before firing one shot from his licensed firearm, hitting one of the officers in the leg.
The suit alleged Taylor's life was wrongfully taken, that the officers had used excessive force and that the search was grossly negligent.
One of the officers involved in the raid, Brett Hankison, was sacked in June.
