Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced that late Wednesday evening the Commonwealth of Virginia reached a settlement with Elizabeth Daly in her $40 million lawsuit against several agents of the Virginia, and the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).

Under the terms of the agreement, Daly will receive a settlement of $212,500 and a letter from the ABC Board explaining the circumstances of her arrest for presentation to any future employers.

"My goal throughout this case has been to reach a resolution that is just and fair for all parties, including Ms. Daly, the ABC and its agents, and the Commonwealth and its taxpayers. After careful consideration of the potentially significant costs of taking this case to trial, I believe we have reached such an outcome. ABC agents do important work enforcing our alcohol laws and combating underage drinking, and the new policies and procedures implemented after this incident will help ABC effectively fulfill its mission while ensuring the safety of officers and the public. The Commonwealth and I wish Ms. Daly the very best in all of her future endeavors," Attorney General Herring said in a statement.

The settlement between the Commonwealth and Daly is not an admission of any wrongdoing by the plaintiff or defendants.
