$32.7M Settlement Reached in Ghost Ship Fire Lawsuit


The city of Oakland has reached a $32.7 million settlement of the lawsuits filed over the disastrous Ghost Ship warehouse fire in 2016.

The Oakland City Council authorized the settlement on behalf of 32 of the 36 people who lost their lives when the fire swept through an illegal music party inside the cluttered 10,000-square-foot warehouse in Oakland’s Fruitvale district on the night of Dec. 2, 2016.

A press release from the city of Oakland said the settlement will be allocated with $23.5 million for the families of the fire victims who perished and $9.2 million for plaintiff Sam Maxwell, who survived the fire but will live with severe, lifelong injuries and major medical expenses.
