Protest in Bronx of NYPD Surveilance of Willis Ave Restaurant Triggers SDNY Lawsuit

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12 – Yajaira Saaverdra was in her family's restaurant La Morada at 308 Willis Avenue in the South Bronx on January 11, 2019 when NYPD officers tried to conduct a narcotics surveillance operation there.

  She protested - exercising her First Amendment rights - and was handcuffed and placed under arrest. She sued. 

On May 12 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a conference in the case. Inner City Press, which has long covered the Bronx and Willis Avenue in particular covered it.

   The issues largely concerned identifying all of the NYPD officers involved. The plaintiff's lawyer said she is not a fan of virtual depositions and hopes that conditions in New York City will allow for in-person depositions soon.

    Judge Furman, after being dropped off the call by cell phone, ruled that expert discovery should end by January 9, 2021, while a pretrial conference is listed for November 17, 2020.

 The case is Saavedra v. City of New York, et al., 19-cv-7491 (Furman).
