Santa Monica, CA to Pay $122.5M Settlement to Sex Abuse Victims

Santa Monica will pay $122.5 million to 124 people who alleged suffered sexual abuse as children at the hands of a former city employee who volunteered with the Police Activities League, attorneys said.

The settlement, approved Tuesday night by the Santa Monica Council, brings to nearly $230 million the total amount paid by the city to resolve legal claims brought against the city over the alleged actions of Eric Uller, who killed himself in 2018 after being charged with various molestation counts.

Uller, 50, worked with the city as a systems analyst when he was arrested in 2018 on allegations that he had been molesting boys as far back as the late 1980s. Attorneys representing alleged victims said he volunteered with the city’s Police Activities League, claiming to be a police officer and even showing children a badge and gun to gain their trust.
