One of the largest deaf discrimination settlements ever

New York City will pay a deaf woman $750,000 for the way NYPD officers treated her. The city agree to a settlement this week with Staten Island landlord Diana Williams. In 2011, she was attempting to evict a tenant when officers wrongfully arrested her and held her for 24 hours without giving her access to an interpreter. Williams was released without any charges being filing. You can read the settlement here.
