Woman Arrested In Bronx Amid Order of Protection Mulled $5000 Settlement in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 1 –  Denise Marlin was arrested by a police officer of the 52nd Precinct in The Bronx for, she says, having an order of protection violated.

 She agreed, or appeared to agree, to settle it for $5,000.  

 On December 1, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.    

Marlin's lawyer said the case is trial ready.

 The City's lawyers said it is already settled and it is time to enforced the $5,000 settlement, citing the factors in Winston v. Mediafare, 777 F.2d 78, a 1985 case from the Second Circuit. 

Marlin disputes that the terms of the alleged agreement had been agreed to - saying that it had not been decided whether to use a stipulation of voluntary withdrawal or a stipulation of settlement.

There is also, of course, the issue of attorney's fees.

The case is Marlin v. City Of New York et al., 18-cv-5573 (Carter / Wang)
