Changes made to deal settling NYPD surveillance lawsuits

Revisions have been made to an agreement in the NYPD Muslim surveillance lawsuits.



The revisions expand the responsibilities of a civilian representative acting as a check against surveillance abuses by the police department.



A judge will have to approve it before the settlement is final.



The lawsuit came after NYPD surveillance targeted Muslims at businesses, universities and mosques after 9/11 including ones in Paterson, Newark and at Rutgers University.
