ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - An Arlington Heights man will receive $10,000 in a settlement with the village over the seizure of three antique firearms.

The lawsuit was settled out of court for $185,000 and approved Monday by Arlington Heights. But the Daily Herald (https://bit.ly/1KiFUdy ) reports that $175,000 of the settlement will go to Art Lovi’s attorneys.

In August 2012, his guns were seized by police after a therapist reported that Lovi made a threat against a doctor who he believed misdiagnosed his deceased wife’s cancer. A mental health assessment determined Lovi wasn’t a danger to himself or others, but the village’s police department didn’t return the weapons for another two months.

A legal battle ensued after a Chicago-based law firm filed a civil rights lawsuit on Lovi’s behalf in January 2013.
