NYCLU Wins Round in Information Access Battle

The New York Civil Liberties Union has won a round in its two-year battle to gain access to an electronic stop-and-frisk database that it contends will shed light on alleged racial profiling tactics employed by the New York Police Department.

In an amicus brief on behalf of the NYCLU, the New York City Bar Association wrote in January that “the Rand Report raises more issues than it resolves and should serve as the beginning, not the end, of the process for reviewing the NYPD’s methods relating to investigatory detention.”
