I just hope he really could afford to spend this money- on a belt. I think instead of improving our lives most people are focused on spending money on things that have no significance on the improvement of there lives.

I'm curious as to how much he'll actually get in his pocket minus the lawyer fees he had to pay


Great question!!! I hope he had not been getting advances. I hope he gets a good portion.

Black student wins $45G settlement over alleged Barneys profiling, NYPD stop-frisk

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Wednesday, January 20, 2016, 4:10 AM

A young black man who claimed Barneys and the New York Police Department profiled him for credit card fraud because he bought a $349 belt has won a $45,000 settlement from the city, according to officials.

Trayon Christian used his debit card to buy a reversible, black-and-white Ferragamo belt from Barneys' Upper East Side flagship on April 27, 2013.

After he left, the Corona, Queens resident was hassled by two undercover NYPD detectives on Fifth Ave. and E. 60th St., a block away from the tony Madison Avenue department store, Christian alleged in an October 2013 lawsuit.

The cops detained Christian who was an engineering student at the New York City College of Technology, where he also held a work-study job because they didn't think a young, black man could lawfully purchase the high-priced accessory, he said.

The New York Police Department has maintained that Christian was held for around 40 minutes, not two hours.

In August 2014, Barneys agreed to pay $525,000 in fines to settle racial profiling claims.

Christian's lawyers declined to comment.

Asked about the settlement, a spokesman for the city's Law Department commented: "Resolving this litigation was in the best interest of the city."

The terms of Christian's settlement with Barneys is unclear.
