"The lawsuit, filed against the City of New York, the mayor of New York, the Police Commissioner, and two officers, states that Andrew Smith was attacked by an NYPD officer during a peaceful protest against racial inequality last year."



"The suit specifically alleges that Smith’s First, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated by the NYPD officer’s actions:

During the incident, the City of New York (“the City”) and members of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”) subjected Mr. Smith to, among other things, the excessive use of force, unlawful search and seizure, civil assault and battery, interference with his right to free speech, racial discrimination, and constitutionally deficient supervision and training of NYPD employees."
