NLOA Chairman Anthony Miranda will join a distinguished panel of speakers to discuss Police Misconduct and Civil Liability at CUNY School of Law in Queens. We invite you to attend.
Location: The City University of New York, CUNY SCHOOL of LAW. Law in the Service of Human Needs.
Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 5:30 p.m: Room 1-202 at the CUNY School of Law; 2 Court Square, Long Island City, New York 11101.
Police Misconduct and Civil Liability: The NYPD now pays out more money in civil law suits than any other municipal agency. The number of civil rights cases brought against the NYPD increased by 70% since 2006 and cost the city $185 million in 2011.
This panel features attorneys who file lawsuits for false arrest, excessive force, false imprisonment and other civil rights violations as well as an attorney that has worked for the NYC Office of Corporation Counsel and a former NYPD Sergeant and Chairman of the NLOA.
Having panelists who have worked on both sides of the issue will allow us to explore the relationship between the increase in these lawsuits in relation to efforts to reform police practices like stop-and-frisk.
Please join us for a very interesting and relevant discussion in light of the recent news developments directly related to these issues.
Food will be served.
