Chuck Turner, Boston settle suit over City Council ouster

Former Boston city councilor Chuck Turner received a $106,000 settlement from the city after the state’s highest court ruled that he was improperly thrown out of office after his bribery conviction.

The Supreme Judicial Court had ruled that the City Council overstepped its authority when it voted Dec. 1, 2010, to oust Turner. A month earlier, a jury had found Turner guilty of accepting a $1,000 bribe and lying about it to the FBI.
