  •  A federal lawsuit filed by a North Dakota woman who said she suffered permanent injuries from a police handcuff incident has been settled out of court.
    Cheryl Schultz sued Valley City and two police officers after the March 2009 incident. She claimed she suffered second-degree burns when police used an electric grinder to remove one of the cuffs placed on her wrists when she was arrested for drunken driving.
    She had sought $50,000 in damages. Valley City Attorney Russ Myhre (MY'-ree) tells KOVC radio that terms of the settlement are not being made public.
