Journalist Arrested By NYPD Covering Protest Pursue Failure to Train Claim in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 14 – Journalist Michael Nigro was arrested while covering a demonstration in New York City on March 19, 2016. He sued.  

  On January 14, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

The case was filed in March 2019. Judge Furman said the parts of it that remain about about "failure to train." 2020 WL 5503539.

 The complaint states that "this false arrest would never have occurred but for the decision made by the City of New York to not properly train NYPD officers on the First Amendment rights of media." 

 Now motions are due by February 15, and depositions by September 10.

Inner City Press, with its own journalistic experience with untrained / unlawful security in New York City (albeit in international territory) hopes to cover this case more closely.

The case is Nigro v. City Of New York et al., 19-cv-2369 (Furman)
