Expert report released by the Center for Constitutional Rights for its New York Police Department (NYPD) stop-and-frisk case, Floyd v. City of New York. Prepared by Jeffrey Fagan, Professor of Law and Public Health at Columbia University, the report supports claims that the NYPD has engaged in a pattern of unconstitutional stops that disproportionately affects Black and Latino New Yorkers. Floyd, et al. v. City of New York, et al. is a federal class action lawsuit filed against the NYPD and the City of New York challenging the Department's stops-and-frisks and alleging violations of the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments.
