SALT LAKE CITY — The American Civil Liberties Union of Utah announced it has reached a settlement between its plaintiffs and Ogden City regarding the controversial gang injunction. 

The ACLU of Utah issued a press release Wednesday evening indicating plaintiffs Leland McCubbin and Daniel Lucero reached a compromised settlement with the city.

Ogden City and the two plaintiffs have agreed to terms that resolve prior disputes regarding the application of the city’s prior gang injunction, the release says. The agreement fully resolves the matter, including all possible appeals.

This resolution does not resolve all matters, however, and the case is still pending against Weber County defendants, the release says. 

McCubbin and Lucero’s attorneys argued their case in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court back in May 2017.

The anti-gang injunction — established in 2010 — restricted Ogden Trece gang members from associating with each other and set an 11 p.m. curfew, among other regulations. The injunction was thrown out by the Utah Supreme Court in 2014 after the court determined gang leaders had not been served the injunction.
