Tiffany Guerrero Was Arrested In The Bronx 8 Years Ago Now Jury Rejects Her Case

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 5 -- It was more than eight years ago on January 18, 2012 that Tiffany Guerrero was arrested near the Pelham Parkway elevated train stop on charges of robbery.

On February 25, 2020 she was in Manhattan Federal court suing NYPD Officer David Revans for the arrest, with City lawyers trying to keep information sealed.  

 Inner City Press was the only one in the gallery of the courtroom of Judge Vernon S. Broderick of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

  And now on March 5, Inner City Press alone reports that this trial ended in a finding that Guerrero did not prove her case by a preponderance of the evidence: a single X on the verdict sheet. This after a deliberation past 6 pm, a police officer who came without his memo book, and a team of four representing the City.

  On March 3 to 6:30 pm with Inner City Press the only media present, the jury sent back questions such as, who was responsible for sending the case to the District Attorney for prosecution?
  After much back and forth, Judge Broderick sent the jury back into their room to clarify their question. This resulted in a more pro-defense formulation: did the officer have any ability to stop the referral to the DA? Inner City Press will have more on this.

Back on February 25 when the eight jurors - six for real and two alternates - went out, Judge Broderick asked the four City lawyers if they had listed the alleged victim in their discovery productions.    The City lawyers named her, and Inner City Press heard the name. Then they said they would redacted the transcript to take it out, and leave only the initials (I.T.).

They also read out the phone numbers of witnesses.  Sergeant Richard Alvarado said repeatedly he did not remember anything about the incident beyond what was in his memo book, which he did not bring to court.

This is a civil rights case against the City of New York in 2020. The case is Guerrero v. The City of New York, et al., 14-cv-8035 (Broderick).
