New York, NY - Report: 'Destruction Of Evidence' Charges Leveled Against NYPD In Summons Quota Class Action Suit
New York, NY - Lawyers for a class-action suit are accusing the NYPD with issuing bogus summonses based on a quota system have filed court documents charging the NYPD with a systematic “pattern” of destruction of evidence related to the case, according to an exclusive report by the NYDAILYNEWS.com (http://nydn.us/1exe0g4) reports that.
In court papers filed in Manhattan Federal Court, attorney for suit, Elinor Sutton, stated that attorneys for the NYPD have yet to turn over a single email from four top ranking NYPD officials, including former commissioner Ray Kelly, containing language associated with the term “summons” dating back to 2007.
Sutton stated it is simply “not tenable” that Kelly, nor other high ranking NYPD brass, neither wrote nor received emails over the past eight years containing the word “summons.”
Sutton also said her legal team has obtained copies of NYPD inter-departmental emails through whistle-blowers suggesting admonition of officers who fail to meet summons quotas.
The class action suit alleges that the NYPD may have issued up to 850,000 bogus summonses between 2007 and present day.
