New York City Is Paying $3.3 Million to the Kalief Browder Estate.

In a recent settlement, New York City has agreed to pay $3.3 million to the estate of Kalief Browder.

“Kalief Browder’s story helped inspire numerous reforms to the justice system to prevent this tragedy from ever happening again, including an end to punitive segregation for young people on Rikers Island,” the city’s law department said in a statement. “We hope that this settlement and our continuing reforms help bring some measure of closure to the Browder family.”

Papers will be filed soon, according to the family’s lawyer, Sanford A. Rubenstein.
