Last two Monteiro plaintiffs settle reports that former Cambridge city lawyer Linda Stamper and current city employee Mary Wong, the last two of the five Monteiro plaintiffs, have settled their cases.

Malvina Monteiro was recently paid $8.3 million by order of superior and appeals courts as a result of a judgment which found that Cambridge destroyed her life in retaliation for her filing one of five civil rights complaints which were joined in one legal action against Cambridge.

The article looks like a good summary of the situation.

Key quote in of Attorney Zucker representing the plaintiffs:

“Miss Wong and Miss Stamper, with the resolution of this case, believe that their work is done here,’’ said Zucker, who added she cannot disclose details of the settlement. “It’s really up to the city’s citizens and its leadership to decide what lesson they want to learn from the concerns that were raised, and the resolution, of this matter.’’
