Midlevel NY Court Reinstates Stop-And-Frisk Claim

ALBANY, NY – An appeals court has reinstated the lawsuit by two men who claim the New  York Police Department is illegally keeping their personal information and  that of about 360,000 others who were stopped and frisked but whose cases were  later dismissed.

The Appellate  Division panel says a judge erred in dismissing the case and Clive  Lino and Daryl  Khan have legal standing to make injury claims since their unsealed records  put them at “imminent risk” of stigma and being targeted by police in the  future.

Both  were stopped and frisked by police in 2009 and issued summonses that were later  dismissed.

The  midlevel court says Thursday that state lawmakers enacted provisions for sealing  records to remove any stigma from criminal accusations.
