Van Voast left despite the unfinished business of her lawsuit against the city and the NYPD. While living in Berea, she got a call from Ron Kuby with news that the city had agreed to settle. She was awarded $77,000, of which nearly half goes to Kuby and Rosenfeld. (The New York Post trumpeted the story on its front page with the headline "BOOBIE PRIZE.")

Although much of her share will be consumed by taxes, Van Voast considers it a vindication. "It happened: I got a settlement in my favor," she says. She's hoping to use some of the proceeds to write a book about her experiences, tentatively titled Topless Zodiac.

Ramona Santorelli's battles are long behind her. These days she goes shirtless every summer, swimming, biking, and strolling through Rochester's many scenic outdoor festivals. No one ever hassles her.

Ron Kuby says his client’s performance “bothers a lot of people at some sort of deep level I’m not qualified to assess.”

"It's fine," Santorelli says, sounding proud, if a little weary.

"Nobody says a word to me. I think they know who I am."
