Stop-and-Frisk Lawsuit - Been stopped and/or frisked illegally by the NYPD since January 2005?

Oct 1, 2012 deadline to submit surveys if you have been unjustly stopped by the NYPD since January 2005!  The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), a member of Communitied United for Police Reform, is currently litigating, along with its co-counsel, a federal class-action lawsuit called Floyd v. City of New York, challenging the New York City Police Department’s illegal stop-and-frisk practices. This past May, the judge in the case ruled that anyone illegally stopped by the NYPD since January 2005 is potentially a member of the plaintiff class. The trial is set to be held in March of 2013 (see: New York 'stop and frisk' trial set for March 2013) and CCR is asking people who have been illegally stopped by the New York City Police Department since January 2005 to contact them, by filling out the form available online at:, by October 1, 2012.

Floyd, et al. v. City of New York, et al. is a federal class action lawsuit filed against the New York City Police Department and the City of New York that challenges the NYPD's practices of racial profiling and unconstitutional stop-and-frisks. These NYPD practices have led to a dramatic increase in the number of suspicion-less stop-and-frisks per year in the city, with the majority of stops in communities of color. For any questions about the Floyd class action lawsuit, you can visit:
