A federal lawsuit against the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office in the beating of an inmate in April 2014 has been settled for an undisclosed amount of money.

Jason Brungardt, 41, of Lafayette, filed the suit last year after he said two deputies — Brandon Gallien, 29, of Opelousas, and Michael McSheffrey, 35, of Lafayette — beat and pepper-sprayed him in the Correctional Center.
