Pivarnick's attorneys Kevin Mintzer and David Harrison said, "Throughout this process, Angelina has been brave, dignified, and determined to see that justice was done. The settlement reflects the serious abuse that Angelina experienced while working for EMS."

Per the NY Daily News, Nicholas Paolucci, a spokesman with the city's law department, said in a statement, "The FDNY takes allegations of sexual harassment seriously. Ms. Pivarnick’s claim was fully investigated, and the appropriate corrective action was taken. This settlement was in the best interests of the city."
