In the Courts

To protect the civil rights and civil liberties of New Yorkers, the NYCLU files lawsuits in federal and state courts across New York. Our cases range from massive class-action lawsuits that involve tens of thousands of people and last for decades, to individual cases that may be resolved in months. All of our cases, however, share a common goal: to vindicate important rights enshrined in the United States Constitution, in federal law, in the New York Constitution, and in New York state and local laws.
