The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted on the settlement on Wednesday which ended in a tie and sends it back before a judge.

Earlier this month, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting was disrupted by protesters when they were scheduled to vote on a settlement case for Jennifer Braillard's family.

Braillard died when in custody of the Maricopa County Jail.

The family was set to receive a more than $3 million settlement, but the meeting was adjourned because of the protests.
