Case Summary

On October 26, 2010, a group of Latino men and women filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983, 1985(3), 1986, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, against the Town of East Haven and the East Haven Police Department. The plaintiffs, represented both by private counsel and Yale Law School's legal services organization, sought (1) compensatory damages for their individual injuries; (2) punitive damages; and (3) injunctive relief ad…

On October 26, 2010, a group of Latino men and women filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983, 1985(3), 1986, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, against the Town of East Haven and the East Haven Police Department. The plaintiffs, represented both by private counsel and Yale Law School's legal services organization, sought (1) compensatory damages for their individual injuries; (2) punitive damages; and (3) injunctive relief adequate to prevent the continuation and recurrence of the unlawful conduct by the Town and Police Department.

The complaint alleged the Town and Police Department engaged in a campaign of racial profiling against Latino men and women. The defendants allegedly enforced traffic and immigration laws against Latinos in a discriminatory fashion and demonstrated anti-Latino bias through officials' derogatory statements. The plaintiffs further claimed that the Town and Police Department denied Latinos their constitutional rights by subjecting them to unreasonable searches and seizures, beatings, use of Tasers, illegal arrests, and excessive use of force. These practices were done for the purpose of intimidating the Latino community.

On April 24, 2012, the District Court (Judge Janet Bond Arterton) granted the United States' Motion to Intervene and stay the case pending the resolution of a related federal criminal case. The case was reopened on November 11, 2012 and, on June 26, 2012, transferred to Judge Alvin W. Thompson because he was presiding over a related civil case (USA v. East Haven, 3:12-cv-01652-AWT, PN-CT-0001) brought by the United States against the Town. Following the settlement of that case, the Town and Police Department were required to institute new policies and practices as part of the settlement agreement.

As a result, on August 12, 2014, Judge Thompson approved the parties' Consent Motion to Approve Stipulation as they entered a Settlement Agreement for conditional dismissal, pursuant to the similar one reached in USA v. East Haven, against all defendants except one officer. East Haven agreed to: pay total damages in the amount of $450,000; implement remedial training relating to the use of force, stops and searches and seizures; and implement bias-free policing, supervisory review, and a complaint-review process. The agreement stated that the injunctive relief would remain in effect until the later of the two options: four years from the date that the Board implements its new policies or the time at which the district court terminates the settlement agreement. On September 26, 2014, the Court approved the parties' stipulation to dismiss the case with prejudice and without costs. As of January 30, 2019, no further docket activity occurs and the injunctive relief window is finished, so this case is presumably closed.

ORDER: Defendants move for reconsideration of the Court's 43 Order granting the Government's 42 Motion for Leave to Intervene and for a partial stay of discovery, arguing that they had no opportunity to respond to the motion because the Government failed to timely serve it on them. This motion is unopposed. The standard for a motion for reconsideration is "strict." Shrader v. CSX Transp., Inc., 70 F.3d 255, 257 (2d Cir. 1995). "The major grounds justifying reconsideration are 'an intervening change of controlling law, the availability of new evidence, or the need to correct a clear error or prevent manifest injustice,'" Virgin Atl. Airways, Ltd. v. Nat'l Mediation Bd., 956 F.2d 1245, 1255 (2d Cir. 1992) (quoting 18B C. Wright, A. Miller, & E. Cooper, Federal Practice & Procedure § 4478), and reconsideration should be granted only if "the moving party can point to controlling decisions or data that the court overlooked matters, in other words, that might reasonably be expected to alter the conclusion reached by the court," Shrader, 70 F.3d at 257. Because the Court has now been advised that Defendants lacked opportunity to respond to the Governments motion before it was granted, their 44 Motion for Reconsideration is GRANTED. Defendants are directed to file by July 6, 2011 their memorandum in opposition, including their analysis of why the balance of interests weigh against the partial stay of discovery imposed, specifically identifying the items of discovery they have sought or believe they are entitled to in this case, which have been precluded by the stay. Defendants may further challenge the sealing of the Governments motion. The Government will file any reply by July 13, 2011. Signed by Judge Janet Bond Arterton on 6/22/2011. (Kretman, J.)
