A photographer who was questioned and detained by D.C. Police after taking pictures of a traffic stop in June 2010 has settled his lawsuit against the city.
Jerome Vorus says officers told him what he was doing was "illegal" and that he needed "permission" before photographing officers even though he was standing on a public street.
Vorus and the Washington chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union dropped the lawsuit on Monday.
As part of the settlement, a new directive was issued stating D.C. police cannot interfere with citizens as they take pictures or video of officers, in public places, doing their jobs.
Vorus also received an undisclosed monetary settlement.
