On August 21, 2017, the City Council enacted into law Local Law 137 of 2017 (previously Int. No. 1136-A) which amended the administrative code of the City of New York to add a new section 7-113: civil actions regarding the department of corrections. This law requires the City’s Law Department to post information on civil actions alleging misconduct commenced against the department of corrections and individual employees on its website.
The law mandates such reporting twice a year, in January and July, regarding actions commenced in the preceding five year period. Please note that each report includes one row per each named defendant but each row contains the total city payout amount for the matter. All disposition amounts reflect the total for the case and cannot be attributed to a particular defendant, other than the City of New York. The individual employees listed in this report were parties in the indicated litigation but may have been dismissed prior to the final disposition.
