NYC settles suit over seizure of Occupy books

“A settlement was announced Tuesday in a lawsuit filed over the 2011 seizure of the “People’s Library” at the Occupy Wall Street site in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park. New York City and Brookfield Properties agreed to pay more than $230,000 to settle the lawsuit filed last year in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, according to attorney Norman Siegel. The settlement calls for the city to pay $47,000 for the loss of books and $186,000 in legal fees, said Siegel. About $16,000 will come from Brookfield, owners of Zuccotti Park. (via AP)

The Occupy DC library has become a hub of information — and novels — for the Washington protesters camped out in McPherson Square park. It’s collection includes four copies of “Not on Our Watch: Mission to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond,” one edition of “French Women Don’t Get Fat” and one man’s donated comic book collection.”
