A lawsuit stemming from a sex abuse attack at the Puerto Rican Day parade six years ago has finally been settled.
Anne Peyton Bryant settled for $125,000 in her civil suit against the city and the Police Department.
She says police officers did nothing to help her and dozens of other woman from being stripped and groped by a group of men after the parade in 2000.
The case was in State Supreme Court Thursday, but the settlement was reached before opening statements got underway.
The city says there were 23 lawsuits stemming from the incident. All have been settled, with awards ranging from $1,000 to $150,000.
