(EVANSVILLE) - The city of Evansville paid $60,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a woman whose home was damaged during a SWAT raid in 2012 as police investigated online threats against officers.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the settlement with Louise Milan was announced in May, but terms were not disclosed. The agreement does not identify any "liability, guilt, fault, or wrongdoing" by police or Milan. It also releases the city, police department, individual officers and Milan from further legal claims.

The lawsuit alleged police violated Milan's constitutional rights when the SWAT team tossed two flash-bang grenades into her home and forced their way in to serve a search warrant. Police were looking for evidence of anonymous internet posts threatening police. No evidence was found in the home.
