Stinson et al v. The City of New York, No. 1:2010cv04228 - Document 260 (S.D.N.Y. 2015)

Court Description: OPINION: Defendants Raymond W. Kelly, the City of New York, and 50 John Doe police officers (collectively, the "Defendants" or the "City") have filed a letter-motion to remove the statutory seal imposed by N.Y.C.P.L. §§ 160.50 and 160.55 on the records of all individuals who received criminal court summonses between May 1, 2007 and the conclusion of this litigation. The City has failed to make the strong showing required to unseal the records. Its need for the infor mation sought is insufficient to outweigh the privacy interests at issue and the deference accorded to state-created privileges. See Daniels, 2001 WL 228091, at *1. The motion to unseal is therefore denied. It is so ordered. (As further set forth in this Order) (Signed by Judge Robert W. Sweet on 12/11/2015) (kko)
