Doctor Arrested For False Imprisonment in His Harlem MIST Sued NYC in SDNY But Loses

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 15 – In June 2017 Doctor Clyde Pemberton after interacting with three women, one of them unconscious, in his Harlem MIST restaurant was arrested for false imprisonment. He sued.  

On November 13, 2023 Pemberton was on the witness stand being cross examined by the City's lawyer.

He was asked about his 2019 deposition, and if he knew that his son had seen a video of the incident the day after it happened. He said no, and the City's lawyer said it was a good time to take a break. U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield said she agreed. Inner City Press was in the courtroom, and also took a break.

  The complaint describes NYPD taking their information from "a blond woman,  and quotes one of the two women calling him the N-word.

After court on November 13, Judge Schofield ruled that the deposition testimony of Gizelle Gant and Kasseem Reedick can be admitted into evidence, due to unavailability.

On November 15, the jury found against the plaintiff on both false arrest and malicious prosecution.

The case is Pemberton, et al., v. City of New York, et al., 18-cv-7908 (Schofield)
