The City blinked and now they’re paying in the case of Evelyn and Tarif Warren. The civil rights case – which was scheduled to begin at Brooklyn federal court on Monday, May 14th – was settled out of court. Speaking to supporters who came out on Monday morning, the Warrens held a press conference instead.

On Thursday, June 21, 2007, police assaulted the Warrens when they questioned them as they beat a handcuffed youth in the parking lot of a McDonald’s in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

The settlement was “substantial, and big enough to say that the City knew there was wrongdoing,” said Michael Warren.
