Although the City's response to my OPRA request was incomplete (see my e-mail to Karen Gose below), it appears that the City's insurer proposed that the suit be settled for $150,000. I haven't seen anything about this in the newspapers' archives.
I will post the protective order and actual settlement agreement when they are provided. What I've received so far from the City is on-line here.

Dear Ms. Gose:
I am in receipt of your e-mail and attachment pertaining to my OPRA request for documents related to Adair v. Demarzo, et al, Docket No. CPM-L-727-09. You provided me with a 28-page PDF file that contained the 10/22/2009 complaint (spanning pages 4 - 28) and a June 13, 2011 letter from Scibal and Associates, Inc. (spanning pages 2 - 3) that recommended to the Mayor and Council that Adair's suit be settled for $150,000.
Please review the original OPRA request (page 1) and note that I asked for three distinct records:
1. The complaint, which was filed on or about 10/22/09.
2. The Protective Order, which was filed on or about 05/27/10.
3. The Settlement Agreement between the parties, that was NOT filed but was entered into in or about Summer of 2011.
Of these three items, only #1 was furnished. Your response completely ignores #2 and instead of providing me the "settlement agreement" requested in #3, you sent me a letter from Scibal asking the Mayor and Council if it had a problem with settling for $150,000.
Please furnish me with the documents that are responsive to this request.
Very truly yours,
