Adjunct Professor Jonathan Moore was one of the lawyers who presented summations in the historic federal civil rights trial challenging the constitutionality of the New York Police Department’s stop, question and frisk program. The class of plaintiffs allege that hundreds of thousands of minorities each year are targeted for searches on New York’s streets without reasonable suspicion. Moore is one of three lead counsel in the case, along with Darius Charney of the Center for Constitutional Rights and Taylor Hoffman of Covington & Burling. The trial concluded May 20th following nine weeks of testimony in federal court in Manhattan.
