OCTOBER 28th RULING
For the foregoing reasons, the proposed settlement is DISAPPROVED, without prejudice to resubmission after the parties and counsel have had an opportunity to consider this Ruling.
–CHARLES S. HAIGHT, JR. Senior United States District Judge
The proposed modifications now before Judge Haight are Unfair and Unreasonable and therefore fail to satisfy the standards he articulated at the first hearing as necessary to earn the approval of the Court. For those reasons, we ask this Court to use its power to protect the Handschu plaintiff class to reject this settlement as unfair and unreasonable and ask the parties to negotiate a proposed settlement that will both remedy injustices and will prevent their repetition Such a better Handschu settlement would also include acknowledgement by the perpetrator of past wrongs.
Stop NYPD Spying opposes the proposed settlement. It is not set in stone, we can influence it.
