CASE ENTRY

Berg v. N.Y.C. Police Comm’r

Protesters protest money in politics across the street from NYC hotel where President Obama is holding 2011 fundraiser. NYPD officers put up barricades, boxing them in for two hours. (Two require medical attention.) An unconstitutional detention? Probably, but officers couldn’t have been expected to know that, says the Second Circuit.
