The City of Baltimore is now obligated to pay the damages awarded to the class with post-judgment interest through September 15, 2021, totaling $35,280,990.29. Distributions to class members receiving cash awards will be made after the Court rules on any applications seeking awards to be deducted from the judgment of attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, and class representative incentive payments (“Applications”).
