Man Released After Imprisonment for Robbery on Avenue D Sues City, Lax Database Dug Into

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 17 – Juwaun Fraser was arrested on Avenue D on Manhattan's Lower East Side on October 14, 2014 and charged with robbing an undercover drug purchaser in a "Buy and Bust" operation.

 He was subsequently exonerated after serving two years, and then sued for fabrication of evidence. 

  On March 16 and March 17, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Colleen McMahon was presiding over the trial. Inner City Press went and covered it.    

After evidence about Fraser lost wages - at the time of arrest he was a paid union apprentice for the Sheet Metal Workers Local 28 - there was cross examination of a supervisor of the New York Police Department's database of civil lawsuits against police officer. 

 It emerged that at the relevant time, it was left to police officers set to testify to ask for a list of the lawsuits against them.

The allegations in the trial are that the law enforcement witnesses lied and were misleading.

The case is Fraser v. City of New York, et al., 20-cv-4926 (McMahon)
