Foley v. Mansker: Settled
Posted by: Dale Franks on Saturday, July 05, 2008

The case of former San Diego Charger Steve Foley against the city of Coronado and officer Aaron Mansker is over. This week, the trial abruptly ended, and a sealed settlement was announced.

Except, not so fast on that whole "sealed" thing. California law makes sealing a settlement between a public entity and another party extremely difficult, if not impossible. So, yesterday, the city backed off on the demand to seal the settlement, and the terms will probably be announced Monday, once the city council approves it.

That's when the taxpayers of Coronado will find out how much money Aaron Mansker cost them.

Apparently, residents of the city feel that Foley is entitled to whatever he gets.
Coronado residents interviewed yesterday about the settlement said they want to know how their tax dollars are being spent. Last month, Coronado approved a general-fund budget of $36.7 million for fiscal 2008-09, which began Tuesday. The city has general-fund reserves of $38.9 million.

If insurance doesn't cover the entire settlement, the city could have to pay out of the general fund or reserves.

“I'd like to know what (the settlement) is, because we're probably going to have to pay for it,” said Ted Braaten, 86, an 18-year resident of Coronado.

Braaten said he would prefer that “police just patrol Coronado and not get involved in other cases like that.”

Others said Foley deserved the settlement and that Mansker, who remains employed with the Coronado Police Department, had overstepped his authority.

“I feel that Foley has the right to every dime he gets,” said John Bonnett, 34, a 30-year Coronado resident.
Officer Mansker is still employed as a Coronado police officer.
