NYPD whistleblower Adrian Schoolcraft settles suit for $600G
The controversial cop who said he was thrown in a psych ward for blowing the whistle on a quota system in the NYPD settled his case Tuesday for $600,000.
Adrian Schoolcraft had sued the city for a whopping $50 million in 2010 for his alleged unlawful detention at Jamaica Hospital.
He said his brothers in blue waged a campaign of harassment against him after he blew the whistle on cops using arrest quotas and fudging crime stats at the 81st Precinct covering Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Schoolcraft’s claims against the hospital and two doctors still stand. The case is to go to trial in Oct. 19, though that schedule could change in light of the deal. The settlement includes backpay and benefits from Oct. 31, 2009 — the date Schoolcraft was hauled to Jamaica Hospital — through the end of 2015, filings show. A source said the backpay and benefits will make Schoolcraft’s settlement in excess of $1 million and that it’s highly likely he will retire from the force. He remains suspended without pay.
