Barry Gibbs had served 19 years in prison when his conviction was overturned in 2005 after evidence surfaced that he had been framed for murder by a corrupt detective.  He sued New York City in 2006, and the city agreed on June 3, 2010, to pay him $9.9 million, the largest personal settlement in its history. We’ll talk to him about his experience and the settlement.
