Amsterdam recently reached a settlement agreement with a resident who accused the city and the police department of violating his civil rights.
The city of Amsterdam, represented by Clifton Park-based attorney April Laws, agreed to pay resident Ryan Bergh a $25,000 lump sum payment to settle his lawsuit against the city and two police
officers. Bergh, represented by Albany-based attorney Vincent Uba, agreed to drop all claims against the city and officers.
“My client is very satisfied with the resolution, and I am very satisfied with it,” Uba said.
