From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The San Francisco Police Commission has advised the city to settle a civil rights lawsuit in which two girls accused officers of improperly searching them.

Commissioners voted this week to recommend that the city pay the 12- and 14-year-old girls $54,000 each.

In 2002, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, police were responding to a call about four men removing guns from a red car when they stopped the two girls, who along with two others were in a car that matched the general description.

Police did not find any guns, but five officers are facing misconduct charges for what transpired during the search.
