Appeals Court Lets Lawsuit Over NYPD Sound Cannons Proceed

163

A federal appeals court in New York said a case could be filed by the police claiming that an alleged use of voices by the police was excessive.

2. The US Circuit Court of Appeals found that the New York Police Department and the authorities agreed with a lower court judge who ruled that they did not possess immunity.

The case is caused by the New York Police Department’s use of sound pickups known as NYPD’s Long-Range Acoustic Devices during the 2014 protests on Eric Choner’s death.

The device manufacturer says they are making a series of sharp beeps to distribute the crowd. A lawyer for six plaintiffs says he left his voice with his migraine and hearing damage.

A spokesman said the city’s Law Department is in disarray.
