[WATCH] New York to Pay $1.25 Million for Cop’s Body Slam 10 Years Later

Marquez filed her civil lawsuit against the city and Simoes in 2008 and the case was closed on July 10 because of the settlement, according to court records.

The incident, which was captured on video, led to a criminal prosecution of Simoes, now a Yonkers police sergeant. Simoes was acquitted of a charge of violating Marquez’s civil rights in 2009 after federal prosecutors failed to prove to a jury that he intended to hurt her.

In that trial, Simoes’ defense contended that he did not throw Marquez to the ground, but that he slipped on the wet barroom floor. After the trial, jurors said a frame-by-frame version of the video showed that Simoes didn’t throw or drop Marquez because he never released her on the way to the floor.” The video show otherwise.
