Invasive Searches of NYC Jail Visitors Triggers Oversubscribed Class Action In SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 9 – In a civil rights class action about invasive search of visitors at NYC's jail, the question has arisen why so many have come forward with claims. 

 On November 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a proceeding. Inner City Press first emailed to get the security code and then covered it. 

    Others had been given the security code as well. As Judge Berman spoke, a called asked if her lawyer was on the line. Another wanted to opt out.

Judge Berman was polite, but eventually, this is not a Q&A between you and me.   Harvard Law School professor William B. Rubenstein spoke about the process.

It was explained that not all those who had responded fell within the class. Another proceeding was set for December 17.

The case is Grottano et al v. City Of New York et al., 15-cv-9242 Berman)
