Gideon Oliver | From the Memorandum and Order: "This case is one of many cases arising from the arrests of approximately 1,800 people during the Republican National Convention (the “RNC”) in New York City in the summer of 2004. Throughout the litigation, the City of New York and the individual defendants (collectively, the “City”) have withheld or redacted a number of documents requested by the plaintiffs on the basis of various privileges. On March 14, 2007, I granted in part and denied in part the plaintiffs’ motion to compel production of documents that the City claimed were subject to the self-critical analysis privilege, the attorney-client privilege, and the deliberative process privilege. MacNamara v. City of New York, No. 04 Civ. 9216, 2007 WL 755401 (S.D.N.Y. March 14, 2007). The plaintiffs now seek an order compelling the City to produce in unredacted form additional documents that the City has withheld on the basis of the deliberative process privilege and the law enforcement privilege. In addition, the plaintiffs seek an order reopening depositions at which the City instructed witnesses not to answer questions regarding the presence of undercover or plainclothes officers at demonstrations. For the reasons set forth below, the plaintiffs’ motion is granted in part and denied in part."

stormaker | On Monday April 23rd the NY City Council is preparing to override the Mayor’s veto of its terrible pedicab bill. This bill would ban the bikes from bike lanes and bridges, give the NYPD the right to ban them from any streets anytime, ban tiny electric-assist motors, require six times as much insurance as a yellow cab and permit only enough of these fine conveyances to serve the most profitable locations, like Times Square.
