Michael Risher with the American Civil Liberties Union says UC Davis has agreed to give 30 thousand dollars to each of the 21 students sprayed or arrested.  They'll also receive a personal apology from Chancellor Linda Katehi.

"Nothing can undo what happened on November 18th. But, what it can do is take some steps to preventing this from ever happening again," said Risher.

UC Davis will also pay the ACLU to review any policy changes the school proposes. A U.S. District Court judge still has to approve the deal.

Fatima Sbeih was one of the students sprayed. She says she is still healing from the incident.

"The nightmares were things like sitting in a room with like family and then orange gas seeping into the room," said Sbeih.

There is a 100-thousand dollar fund for any students who were sprayed and have not yet come forward.
