LOS ANGELES (AP) — A black Los Angeles judge who says he was roughed up and handcuffed by UCLA police has settled his assault and civil rights claim for about $500,000.

Superior Court Judge David Cunningham had sought $10 million from the school, its police and UC regents.

Cunningham, a former president of the Los Angeles Police Commission, alleged that he was abused after he was stopped for driving without a seatbelt last November. UCLA police say he was cuffed after refusing to stay in his car.

Under a settlement announced Friday, Cunningham will receive $150,000 and UCLA will establish a $350,000 scholarship fund in his name. Campus police will undergo additional training.

UCLA doesn't acknowledge any wrongdoing under the settlement.
