The city agreed to pay $232,000 — $47,000 to cover the costs of the books and $185,000 to civil rights attorney Norman Siegel, who brought the lawsuit last year.
The city also agreed to shell out another $133,000 to settle two other lawsuits growing out the raid, which evicted members of the protest movement from the park after a lengthy encampment.
Global Revolution TV is getting $75,000 for damaged electronic gear, and their lawyers are getting nearly $50,000. Time’s Up, an environmental nonprofit, will receive $8,500 for 16 damaged “energy” bicycles.
