For Kettling of Bronx George Floyd Protest Trio Sued City now Discovery Delay, Mediation Duo

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 11 – Among those suing the NYPD for being kettled and abused in Mott Haven in The Bronx during a June 4, 2020 George Floyd protest, Bryan Roman and two others had their case removed to Federal court. 

 On April 12, 2023, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil held a proceeding. Inner City Press went and covered it.

  Judge Vyskocil asked the City's lawyer why discovery had not been produced.  

A lengthy answer ranging from records "sealed under 160.50" to the consolidated cases ensued.

Judge Vyskocil said discovery is set to close on May 17 and she is not inclined to extend the deadline, unless better cause is shown. 

 The City wanted mediation by Rebecca Price; the plaintiff's lawyer preferred Leslie Salzman.

Judge Vyskocil said she would speak with the latter, and asked the City to docket a letter on April 13 if they would co-pay for private mediation. 

  Plaintiff's counsel said Bryan Roman was uninsured at the time and so did not seek medical treatment but was hit with a baton; his sister settled with the City for $47,000 on less injuries, he said. 

 The case is Jones et al. v. The City of New York, et al., 21-cv-10082 (Vyskocil)
