Women Who Won Suit Against Durham Want More

Posted September 9, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Two women who won a $295,000 settlement from the City of Durham now say they want court records in the case to be opened.

The sisters sued over excessive use of police force during a 1994 drug search near their home. They want the records opened so everyone can see what happened to them.

City officials disagree and are asking a judge to keep the documents closed.
