Cuffee Was Cuffed In Prison Bus That Crashed Now SDNY Lawsuit Stalled By Not Appearing

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 22 – Hiawatha Cuffee was injured while in a Department of Corrections bus on the way from Rikers Island to Bellevue Hospital. He filed a lawsuit that the bus went too fast and skidded; he was thrown forward, shackled.   

On August 5 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  While the defendants were asking for a default judgment for failure to prosecute, Cuffee was there.

 Judge Freeman allowed that perhaps he had only misunderstood how to respond to discovery requests.

 On September 21, Magistrate Judge Freeman held another proceeding, on discovery disputes. Cuffee had convey that he would not attend, but no one would say why. A notice was mailed to him both on Staten Island and in The Bronx.

 It is Cuffee Jr. v. Gonzalez et al., 15-cv-8916 (Gardephe / Freeman)
