The City of New York on Friday agreed to pay $3.9 million to the family of Ramarley Graham, a black Bronx teenager shot to death by a white police officer in 2012.
A man shot by police after threatening them with a machete has received a $5,000 settlement from New York City.
Attorneys from the firm Stecklow Cohen & Thompson said the $583,000 agreement reached Tuesday is the largest settlement to date in a single Occupy-related civil rights case.
The family of the late Griselde Camacho filed two notices of claim on Wednesday in connection with the March 12 explosion that killed eight people and hurt more than 60. Camacho’s mother, Carmen Quinones, remains hospitalized.
The lawsuit seeks to force the police and other agencies to explain how they came up with the security plan before anything is put in place.
