We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $37,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
The City of Raleigh will pay $37,000 to Nyee’ya Williams, who claimed her civil rights were violated by law enforcement when she participated in a Black Lives Matter protest.
Williams, who was 17-years-old at the time, was at a protest when she was arrested by Raleigh police officers who dragged her to the ground and zip-tied her hands, accusing her of assaulting a police officer, but Williams was never charged with a crime. Attorneys with Emancipate NC, a civil rights group representing Williams, notified the city of Raleigh in June 2021 of an intent to sue. However, the City settled before a legal complaint or lawsuit was filed.
