Bronx Man Sued NYPD For Excessive Force, For Trial They Want Marshals To Hold Drugs

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, September 1 – Eliezer Lopez sued NYPD officers of the 42nd Precinct in The Bronx for excessive force.

He was chased, he says, by police who did not show badges in Crotona Park North and Arthur Avenue. He was pushed after being told, "this is what happens when you run from the cops."        

   On September 1 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Loretta A. Preska held a final pre-trial conference. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Preska described how trial work during the time of COVID, saying that this one will be in large Courtroom 26B. She was asked, Is that where you did the Donziger trial? 

 The municipal defendants asked questions like, Can we leave the drugs seized from plaintiff with the Marshals overnight during the trial? It is said the trial will begin on September 15.

The case is Laureano v. City of New York et al., 17-cv-181 (Preska)
