Bellamy v. City of New York
2nd Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 17-1859
On appeal from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of new York, No. 1:12cv-01025-AMD-PK before the Honorable Ann Donnelly.
The district court's decision unfairly deprives wrongfully convicted individuals of the opportunity to pursue much-needed compensation and improperly immunizes municipalities for district attorneys' misconduct. The district court's decision ignores New York State policy to deter municipalities from violating criminal defendants' constitutional rights.
