Muslim woman settles racial profiling lawsuit with NYC but says officials refused to meet with her to discuss police abuse
by Stephen Rex Brown
A former high-ranking lawyer for the Public Advocate's office who says cops racially profiled her is frustrated at the city's unwillingness to offer anything beyond the $37,500 settlement stemming from her arrest.
Chaumtoli Huq says she's not happy with the outcome of difficult negotiations with city attorneys over the encounter in which an officer allegedly arrested her for no reason following a pro-Palestine protest.
The ex-staffer for Letitia James had sought a meeting between the commanding officer of the Midtown South Precinct where she was arrested and leaders of advocacy groups for Muslim-Americans and women.
