For Immediate Release
Community, Faith, Labor, and Law Enforcement Groups, City Officials Speak Out at City Hall to Support Court’s Orders in Stop-and-Frisk Lawsuit
Oppose Delays Sought by Bloomberg Administration
WASHINGTON - Today, the coalition Communities United for Police Reform and representatives from community, faith, labor, and law enforcement groups will join City officials, attorneys from the Center for Constitutional Rights and co-counsel to voice support for moving forward with the remedial process ordered by the court in the class action lawsuit Floyd, et al. v. City of New York, et al.
After the court denied the City’s motion to delay the remedial process, they filed an appeal in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. On Monday, Floyd plaintiffs will file a motion to oppose any delays, and community groups and elected officials, including Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio, will file declarations or briefs affirming that further delays to police reform are not in the community’s interest.
