$47,000 settlement to Occupy Librarians

I haven’t heard much about the Occupy movement lately, but this article came up in the Books section of my Google News feed this morning. Apparently the city of NY will be paying $47,000 to the Occupy Library for the destruction of all of the books and equipment that were treated so recklessly when the park was cleared out. I wonder what they’ll do with the money? It says the firm that represented them “will collect $186,000”, but I don’t know if that’s supposed to be from the Occupy Library as payment for representation or also from NYC for some reason.
