Women Inmates Sued NYC For Moving Them To Bedford Hills Now Sex Abuse Suit Proceeds

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 9 –  Three women sued the City of New York for its transfer of women and transgender pre-trial detainees to the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, where they say they were abused including sexually abused.

   On February 9, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held a Zoom proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Judge Schofield said lawyers have told her they miss being in the courtroom, so she had set up this proceeding in a civil case by Zoom than than simply phone. 

 The Complaint quotes Correction Officer A saying, "You want a f*cking problem? You think you're f*cking tough? Yea what's up?"

Then Correction Officer A threw Plaintiff Sue Brown onto the floor. 

 And given the abuse at issue in the case, things were surprisingly civil.

On October 7, 2022 in a separate case but also about Bedford Hills, SDNY Judge Ronnie Abrams convened the parties to deliver her ruling on the defendants' motion to dismiss. She denied the motion, recounting from the complaint abuse and indications of inappropriate sexual relations and saying qualified immunity did not apply. The case will proceed.

The first, Judge Schofield case is Brown et al v. City of New York et al., 21-cv-10492 (Schofield)

The second case is Smith v. Annucci, et al., 21-cv-1715 (Abrams)
