Cato Sues NYPD For Arrest on i-Card For Kohl's Shoplifting She Had No Involvement In

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 11 – Nicole Cato was in her home on Staten Island on May 1, 2018 when three NYPD officers came and arrested her on an i-card, which she describes as "an NYPD request that someone be taken into custody, which request has never been evaluated by any judge concerning any probable cause justification."

She sued.    

     On October 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ronnie Abrams held held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

After a Freedom of Information Law request, Cato learned that her arrest "was in relation to a complaint that someone, on July 29, 2017, had shoplifted $133.50 worth of merchandise from a Kohl's store at 2239 Forest Avenue on Staten Island, a crime that Plaintiff had nothing to do with."

The case is Cato v. City Of New York et al., 20-cv-10934 (Abrams)
