Police Transparency Win in NYCLU v. Troy PD
Since 50a was repealed in 2020 in New York, the New York Civil Liberties Union has been working to get police misconduct records out to the public. On February 9, 2023, they won a case against the Troy Police Department. Justice Richard McNally ruled in the State of New York Supreme Court that the Troy Police department does need to turn over its records. Bobby Hodgson is a supervising attorney at the NYCLU and leads their work on 50a. He gave Elizabeth Press (EP) this update.
