Inmate Sues For Assault in Rikers Cell But NYC Notes Punching Blocked From Trial Video

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 14 – George Benn sued the City of New York and NYC Corrections Officer for what he says was an assault in his cell on Rikers Island on February 19, 2015. 

      On May 12, 2023, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jennifer L. Rochon was presiding over the trial. Inner City Press went and covered it.

    Benn's counsel was showing him video from February 19, 2015. Heavily armored corrections officer went into the cell. But due to the way they stood, punches were not visible. 

 Later on May 12, the City's defense lawyer cross examined him about his medical records, having not said his injuries came from officers. 

 The case is Benn v. Morrison, et al., 18-cr-722 (Rochon)
