If you retained Weiss & Associates, PC to fight a NYC pink summons and we got it dismissed (or you fought it yourself and won), you may be able to get up to $150 back per ticket.
As part of a $75 million settlement of a class action lawsuit, New York City will be making payments to persons who received a criminal summons (aka “pink summons”). Qualified individuals must fully complete and postmark a Claim Form on or before September 6, 2017 to be eligible.
The suit arises out of allegations that New York City had quotas which NYPD officers had to fill thereby creating a pressure on officers to issue 100,000s of pink tickets without a legitimate basis. These summons were generally for qualify of life violations (ex, reckless driving, open alcohol container, disorderly conduct, etc.) and were issued between 2007 to 2015.
Settlement Class Members will be eligible to receive a payment for each eligible summons from May 25, 2007 up to January 25, 2017, in settlement of their claims. Subject to this court’s approval, settlement benefits will be made on a pro rata basis, based on the total class settlement fund divided by the total number of eligible claimants. However, no eligible claimant may receive a settlement payment in an amount that exceeds $150.00 per eligible summons.
