On June 5, 2009 our client settled her Federal Court action against the City of New York and former NYC police officers for $401,000 arising from a sexual assault on 11/20/05 after the two police stopped Plaintiff for an alleged traffic violation, followed her to her apartment, and then molested her. The City of NY denied responsibility claiming the acts were outside the scope of the officers’ authority and that the superiors in the NYPD had no prior knowledge of such actions by these officers. Proof adduced multiple acts of domestic violence involving both officers. One PO was convicted at a criminal trial and was sentenced to 4 years in jail.
