Al Sharpton’s daughter caught hiking and in heels after filing $5m suit against NYC for hurt ankle, but city still paid her!

The circumstances surrounding a legal settlement won by notorious race hustler Al Sharpton’s daughter has led many to suspect that she’s as much of a shakedown artist as her dad.

This week the race hustler’s daughter, Dominique Sharpton-Bright, accepted a $95,000 settlement from New York City over an allegedly devastating sprained ankle she suffered while walking through the city four years ago, as reported by the New York Post.

According to her lawsuit, walking on uneven pavement on Broome Street and Broadway in 2014 caused her to suffer a fall that left her “severely injured, bruised and wounded.”

The way she announced the fall suggests otherwise: “I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she initially wrote in an unusual Instagram post uploaded Oct. 2, 2014.

Why would she issue an “lol” (laugh out loud) after spraining her ankle? Ever since she filed a $5 million suit against NYC in 2015, a litany of additional contradictory evidence has emerged.

And all this evidence has originated from her own social media accounts. Photos she uploaded not too long after she suffered the allegedly devastating sprained ankle show her …

She was also seen marching at a National Action Network event in Washington, D.C. just two months after the allegedly devastating fall. And prior to her lawsuit’s settlement, she reportedly missed at least four depositions and refused to fully answer the city’s questions about her alleged injuries.

Given this behavior, why then did the administration of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio settle with her over what clearly appears to be a fraudulent allegation? Some believe the settlement was made so that the city could avoid expending further money and resources defending itself from Sharpton-Bright.

The city’s post-settlement statement suggests as much.

“After a thorough evaluation, we determined that settling this case was in the best interest of the city,” an NYC Law Department spokesman said to the Post.

The Post notes though that the settlement was offered “after the city admitted it was aware of the cracked pavement in the crosswalk but did nothing to fix it.”

That doesn’t explain why the city agreed to fork over nearly $100,000 for a common injury that reportedly costs anywhere between $500 to $2,500 to remedy.

What’s clear is that a large number of New Yorkers aren’t pleased with de Blasio’s administration to essentially “squander” away their money.


What’s also clear to many is that Sharpton-Bright is no different than her father, who has a history of using sketchy schemes to earn money and of not paying his taxes.

“Like father like daughter,” quite a few Twitter users have written.


Neither Sharpton-Bright nor her attorney, John Elefterakis, see anything wrong with what they did.

“[The] case was always about fair compensation for Ms. Sharpton’s ankle injury, which we contend was a result of the city’s negligence,” Elefterakis said.

“Despite unfair treatment in the press, this settlement reflects the reasonableness of Ms. Sharpton, who was willing to settle her meritorious claim for a fair amount based on all factors.”

If this sort of “fair compensation” was doled out by local governments every time a citizen sprained his or her ankle, every municipality in America would likely be as broke as Alyssa Milano.
