CASE ENTRY

Edrei v. Maguire

Allegation: Without warning, NYPD fires “sound gun,” a siren that causes hearing damage, to clear nonviolent protesters (protesting no indictment for officer who put a man in a fatal chokehold) from street onto sidewalk. Second Circuit: Hearing damage is a severe consequence for blocking the road. No qualified immunity. (Click here for some longform journalism on sound guns. Tell ’em Chief Judge Katzmann sent you.)
