Who is included in the Settlement? The Settlement includes individuals (also called Class Members) who were forced to remove a religious head covering for a photograph while in custody of the NewYork City Police Department from March 16, 2014 to August 23, 2021 . How can I get a payment? To receive payment, you need to submit a claim form online or by mail postmarked by September 26, 2024 . If your claim is complete, you will get between $7,824 and $13,125 for each time your religious head covering was removed. What are my rights? Even if you do nothing, if you are a Class Member, you will be bound by the Court’s decisions about the Settlement. If you do not want to be part of the Settlement and, instead, want to keep your right to sue the City of NewYork, your request to exclude yourself from the Settlement must be received by September 26, 2024. If you want to stay in the Settlement but want to object to its terms, your objection must be received by September 26, 2024. The Court will hold a hearing on October 29, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. to consider whether to approve the Settlement, a request for attorneys’ fees and costs, and special service payments of $35,000 to each of the class representatives and $3,500 to $7,000 to each class member who was deposed as part of absent class discovery. Attorneys’ fees will be the amount remaining after administrative costs and special service payments are deducted from $4,375,000. You or your own lawyer may appear and speak at the hearing at your own expense. If the New York Police Department forced you to remove a religious head covering for a post-arrest photograph, you could get $7,824 or more from a Class Action Settlement Legal Notice For More Information or to File a Claim: • 1-833-637-4794 Information in Spanish, Arabic, Punjabi, Bengali, Urdu, and Hebrew available 11111110110001110001101111111 10000010101011001000001000001 10111010001000001001101011101 10111010111000110100001011101 10111010011110101101001011101 10000010011011011011001000001 11111110101010101010101111111 00000000110010011111000000000 10110111000111010111101001011 00110100100001110011111110001 10110011000111001110011110110 10101001110010001000100110001 10111010010110110111000001100 01100101110000101001011100111 01000110000111011111100110111 10001000110010101011000110010 10000011110110111010110011010 01100001010010101000110101110 10010111100011111110010100100 00001101000101100111000000100 01000111011111101110111111100 00000000111110011110100011111 11111110110100110011101011010 10000010111111110010100011000 10111010001100000100111110101 10111010100010000001110011010 10111010111001000010000100101 10000010001000001001100101010 11111110110001010001100001010
