Suit on CIA’s LSD Tests Settled

Associated Press

The government has tentatively settled a lawsuit charging the CIA used nine Canadians as human guinea pigs in mind-control research that included heavy doses of LSD in the late 1950s, lawyers in the case said today.

The tentative out-of-court settlement, negotiated by attorneys for the Canadians and the Justice Department, was announced on the eve of trial at a hearing before U.S. District Judge John Garrett Penn, who has presided over the case for eight years. Neither side would discuss the amount of the proposed settlement, but sources said the CIA agreed to pay the plaintiffs a total of $750,000.
