LatinoJustice Joins LDF in Filing Amicus Brief Opposing Buffalo Unions’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction to Prevent Disclosure of Certain Police Department Misconduct Info

This week, we join the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational and Fund, Inc., Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Law For Black Lives, and the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU Law in filing an amicus brief in opposition to police and firefighters unions’ motion for a preliminary injunction to prevent disclosure of unsubstantiated and non-final claims of misconduct filed against the Buffalo Police Department (BPD) officers.

The amicus brief explains how full transparency of police misconduct is an essential component of police accountability.
