Malik McNeil Claimed False Arrest in White Plains in 2017 Now Gets Visiting Judge Walter in 2020

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 4 – Malik McNeil says he was subject to false arrest and excessive force by the White Plains Police Department on March 5, 2017. He filed suit in May 2017 in the White Plains division of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    But things did not go as planned. The case was assigned to SDNY Judge Kenneth M. Karas, and thence to Magistrate Judge Paul E. Davison. A trial was set for, after adjournments, November 12, 2019.

     But McNeil's lawyer Duncan Peterson citing a trial before SDNY Judge Buchman on that day, also said he was booked a vacation to Antarctica at that time. So a February 2020 date was set, before SDNY Visiting Judge (from the Western District of Louisiana) Donald E. Walter.

    Inner City Press went to the open arguments and heard how Malik McNeil was only trying to break up a fight, but got arrested and humiliated. His lawyer told the jury that McNeil turned to drink, putting his work for a degree at Mercy College at risk. Damages are being sought. The case is McNeil v. Police Officer Cole-Hatchard, 17-cv-3199 (Walter).
