Deal reached in lawsuit over NYPD's surveillance of Muslims
by John Marzulli
The city has reached a settlement "in principle" of a federal lawsuit accusing the NYPD Intelligence Division of religious profiling of Muslims.
The terms of the deal remain confidential until additional details are worked out, city lawyer Peter Farrell informed Judge Pamela Chen in a letter filed Friday in Brooklyn Federal Court.
The suit was brought by three Muslim men, two mosques and a nonprofit organization alleging they were harmed by "suspicion-less surveillance" of their religious activities.
