Question: NYPD lawsuit

What was the biggest award for damages in a class action suit brought against the NYPD? Who was police commissioner during this?

My recollection was that a giant suit was won by multiple plaintiffs during the Giulliani administration involving a scheme to bring hardened prison guards into precincts who then abused New Yorkers charged with very minor offences like brake lights out. People were stripped and sexually bullied very much like Abu Ghraib. But when I try to web search this I come up blank on news sites.
