The Advocate today reports that Lafayette Consolidated Government has paid out about $4.2 million in out-of-court settlements during the past five years.

The paper notes that its request was prompted by the city’s recent $350,000 settlement with Rubens Mesa and Julieta Tarazona, owners of Guamas Restaurant in downtown Lafayette.
