Date Filed Document Text
June 6, 2014 Opinion or Order Filing 70 OPINION AND ORDER: I hold that defendant did not use excessive force in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment when ejecting plaintiff from the Borough Hall subway station on November 11, 2012. Thus, defendant is not liable to plaintiff under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The Clerk of Court is directed to enter judgment for defendant accordingly and close the case. So Ordered by Judge Allyne R. Ross on 6/4/2014. (Lee, Tiffeny)
January 7, 2013 Opinion or Order Filing 4 MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: Plaintiff's 2 request to proceed in forma pauperis is granted for the purpose of this Order. All of the claims against the NYPD and the New York City Transit Police are dismissed for failure to state a claim pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B). No summons shall issue against these defendants. Plaintiff's claims shall proceed against the John Doe Officer. The Court respectfully directs the Clerk of Court to mail a copy of this Order and the Complaint to the New York City Law Department. Once Corporation Counsel has provided the requested information for the defendant, the Clerk of Court is directed to amend the caption of the Complaint to reflect that information. The Clerk is further directed to issue a summons to the remaining defendant, and the United States Marshals Service is directed to serve a copy of the Complaint as amended by the Clerk, this Order, and the summons on the defendant. The Court refers this matter to Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom for pretrial supervision. The Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal would not be taken in good faith and therefore in forma pauperis status is denied for purpose of an appeal. SO ORDERED by Judge Allyne R. Ross, on 1/7/2013. C/mailed to pro se Richard Richardson & Corporation Counsel (w/Plaintiff's Complaint attached) - via regular mail. (Parties: New York City Police Department; and New York City Transit Police Department terminated.) (Latka-Mucha, Wieslawa)
