Rochester Police Locust Club v. City of Rochester et al

The New York Civil Liberties Union in partnership with Shearman & Sterling LLP filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit brought by the Rochester Police Locust Club seeking an indeterminate delay in the City of Rochester’s production of any police officer disciplinary records.

The union argues for a lengthy redaction process under the control of the police officers’ collective bargaining representatives, a procedure that would impair and delay the public’s right to disciplinary records following the repeal of 50-a. Specifically, the union proposes that every individual officer be given an indefinite amount of time to review disciplinary records Rochester intends to make public. In its motion, the NYCLU asks the court to dismiss the Locust Club’s lawsuit in its entirety.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
