New York City has agreed to pay $100,000 in attorney’s fees and damages to end a legal battle with a Jewish practitioner of sexual orientation “conversion therapy.”

Last October, the city officially repealed an ordinance that banned the practice following legal action taken by an Orthodox Jewish psychotherapist named Dr. David Schwartz.
