What is S182 / A710?
NY S182 / A710 removes the special protection of qualified immunity for law enforcement officers in the state of New York, including police officers, corrections officers, and state and municipal government employees. Currently, qualified immunity prevents victims of police violence and abuse of power from suing the offending officers in civil courts. This act ensures these victims have access to justice and increases public safety for all.
