Occupy Wall Street’s “People’s Library” settled a suit out of court with the city Tuesday, winning $232,000 for the destruction of 2,800 books during the police raid on Zuccotti Park in November 2011.

New York City will pay the $232,000 to cover costs of the destroyed property and lawyers’ fees. It will also shell out another $133,000 to settle two other lawsuits growing out the raid, the New York Daily News reports.

“This is not just about the money,” said Occupy’s attorney, Norman Siegel. “It is about holding the city accountable.”
