Civil Rights and Race Relations in America and Their Impact on the Lives of African Americans
Friday, October 5, 2012
Southern District Judge Shira Scheindlin (See Profile) yesterday denied the city's request for summary judgment against nine individuals claiming unlawful stops, frisks and arrests by New York City Police in the city's housing authority buildings. Issuing an 84-page opinion in the putative class action Davis v. The City of New York, 10 Civ. 0699, Scheindlin said Fourth Amendment claims based on the failure to satisfy the requirement that police make stops only based on reasonable suspicion of criminal activity could proceed.
