New York City has agreed to pay more than $53 million to settle a class-action lawsuit covering over 4,000 suspects who were held in harsh conditions at jails on Rikers Island and in the Manhattan Detention Complex, commonly known as the Tombs. The proposed agreement, which requires approval from a federal judge to be finalized, addresses detainees who were held in the facilities from March 2018 to June 2022.

The settlement comes in response to allegations that detainees were subjected to severe and inhumane conditions, including being confined to tight spaces and deprived of sunlight, while awaiting their trials. As part of the terms, the city will pay $400 for each day the detainees were housed at the "covered facilities," which include two facilities on Rikers Island and a housing area in the Manhattan Detention Complex.

This landmark settlement sends a strong message that such treatment of detainees is unacceptable and that cities must take responsibility for the conditions in their jails. The agreement highlights the importance of treating all individuals, regardless of their legal status, with dignity and respect.
