A proposed settlement has been reached with the Federal Defendants in the class action alleging the illegality of the arrests of approximately 400 protestors and others in Pershing Park on September 27, 2002, in Washington, D.C. A settlement was reached with the District of Columbia defendants in 2010. In addition to significant and meaningful reform in U.S. Park Police policies and procedures in the context of First Amendment activities, the proposed settlement includes a payment fund of $2,208,000.
