The city will pay out more than $170,000 to settle with nine people who claimed they were illegally stopped and frisked by police at city housing projects.
The settlements are part of a federal class-action lawsuit filed by the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison and the Legal Aid Society.
Sources tell NY1 the individual payments range from $5,000 to $75,000.
Six cases are still pending.
