Madison police officer Matt Kenny, who is white, shot the unarmed black teenager March 6, 2015 in an apartment house after responding to calls about Robinson behaving erratically. Kenny was later cleared of criminal wrongdoing, and an internal investigation found he didn't violate any police policies. The Robinson family filed the federal lawsuit in the aftermath.
The shooting sparked protests throughout the city and calls for examination of police use of force and renewed efforts by police to educate and engage the community.
