New York City Request Delay In Court-Ordered Remedies
Press Conference at 1:00 p.m. outside courthouse following hearing
Tomorrow, October 29, attorneys from the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) will argue in the court of appeals against the City’s motion for a stay of the remedial process ordered in the class action lawsuit Floyd v. the City of New York.
On Tuesday, CCR attorneys will argue before the Second Circuit that it is in the interest of the community for the process to continue as ordered.
Over 30 declarations from community groups, law enforcement, New York City Council members, Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio, religious leaders and others have been submitted to the court in support of moving forward with the process without further delays.
Attorneys for Ligon v. City of New York, which was joined with Floyd for the remedies phase, will also argue against the delay. The oral arguments in Floyd v. the City of New York will be followed by the press conference.
Tuesday, October 29, 11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Please allow time for passing through security (30-45 minutes is suggested). U. S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, 40 Centre Street (40 Foley Square), Courtroom 1705
