New York reaches outline of settlement over Muslim surveillance

New York has reached the outline of a legal settlement with Muslims over police surveillance, a filing in the two-year-old lawsuit said.

The suit in Brooklyn federal court alleged that the New York Police Department had trampled on religious liberties and constitutional guarantees of equality by monitoring Muslim communities.

The June 2013 suit filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union was part of a battle between the police department and civil liberties advocates over the department's policing tactics.

"The parties have reached a settlement in principle," lawyers for the city said in a letter filed with U.S. Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on Friday.
