The Aug. 30 claims deadline for protesters detained, arrested or subjected to police force during a South Bronx demonstration against the 2020 murder of George Floyd is fast approaching.

On June 4, 2020, hundreds of people penned in by the NYPD in Mott Haven were attacked by police during a peaceful protest. Earlier this year, a class-action lawsuit against the city was settled, which could cost New York nearly $8 million.

The city has agreed to make payments of $21,500 to each settlement-class member and an additional $2,500 to each person who was given a desk-appearance ticket.
