More on NYC gun settlement
SayUncle has more details, and a commentary.
It sounds as if the settlement is: the gun shops agree to better train their salespeople, and to be monitored, and plaintiff NYC agrees to pay for it all! Sounds like quite a settlement ... for the defense. Normally you're happy to walk away--let alone make the plaintiff pay to give your guy something. Monitoring the records -- sure, nothing like free audits to protect against the risk of license revocation.
As SayUncle observes, "So, the city of New York is going to monitor (and pay for it) two small pawn shops in Georgia? Doesn’t sound like much to me other than a symbolic victory, which may be all they’re after." It sounds to me as if NYC sued, and then bailed out before anyone moved to dismiss.
