The consequences for the city could be explosive.

The suit, filed back in 2012, focused on the NYPD’s use of informants in mosques and the gathering of information from Muslim student groups.
In the settlement, the city agreed to pay $75,000 in damages to the plaintiffs, as well as picking up their nearly $1 million in legal fees.
