Case Summary

On August 31, 2015, a group of minority New York City police officers who had been disciplined or fired filed a class action suit against the New York City Police Department (NYPD) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York for violations of the First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments, as well as violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and of 42 USC §§ 1981, 1983, 1985.

On August 31, 2015, a group of minority New York City police officers who had been disciplined or fired filed a class action suit against the New York City Police Department (NYPD) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York for violations of the First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments, as well as violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and of 42 USC §§ 1981, 1983, 1985. The Plaintiffs sought declaratory and injunctive relief and compensatory damages. Specifically, the Plaintiffs claimed that the NYPD's system of traffic violation quotas led to disparate treatment and impact on minority police officers. The case was presided over by Judge Laura Taylor Swain.

On December 2015, the Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. On January 11, 2016, the New York City Police Department moved to dismiss the amended complaint, asserting that the complaint failed to properly state the claims alleged. On March 6, 2017, Judge Laura Taylor Swain granted the Department's motion to dismiss, but allowed the Plaintiffs to make a motion for leave to replead the claims and requests for relief. On May 14, 2017, the Plaintiffs filed a memorandum of law in support of their motion for leave to file a second amended complaint. On June 27, 2018, the plaintiffs’ motion to amend their complaint was granted and denied in part. Each plaintiff’s claims were reviewed individually. The court allowed individual plaintiffs' federal discrimination claims against various individual defendants, various plaintiffs’ retaliation claims, all plaintiffs’ state law claims, all plaintiffs’ First Amendment retaliation claims against one individual defendant, and various plaintiffs’ First Amendment retaliation claims against the City and additional individual defendants.

On July 18, 2018 the plaintiffs submitted an amended complaint that abided by the District Court’s ruling. Discovery began August 18, 2018. On October 2, 2019, the case was reassigned to Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave. After multiple discovery deadline extensions, with the final deadline being January 10, 2020, parties were required to submit a joint status report and they scheduled a settlement conference for December 4, 2019. The parties did not settle. The case is ongoing.
