Last year, Eric Garner's family began to file a $75 million suit against New York City. On Monday, the city agreed to pay $5.9 million to bring the dispute to a close.
Garner's family brought the case in October, about two months before a grand jury chose not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the 43-year-old's death.
