Seth Brigham Will Receive $10,000 From Boulder To Settle Suit Over Arrest For Addressing City Council In Boxers

BOULDER, Colo. — The lawyer for a Colorado man who was arrested for addressing the Boulder City Council in his boxer shorts said the city has agreed to pay $10,000 to settle his civil rights claim.

Attorney David Lane said Seth Brigham accepted the deal Tuesday. In exchange for the payment, Brigham agreed not to file a lawsuit.

Brigham was handcuffed and arrested in February on suspicion of obstructing police and trespassing after he spoke to the council clad in his underwear. Brigham said he was trying to make a point about a proposal to criminalize nudity.

The charges were later dropped.
