Comptroller announces decrease in lawsuits against NYC, NYPD
An analysis by the office of New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer showed that the number of lawsuits brought against the New York Police Department for misconduct and personal injury have decreased by as much as 12% over the 2015 fiscal year; however, some precincts still have a number of complaints being reported against them.
The Comptroller’s Office’s ClaimStat, which lists claims against the city’s agencies, showed that complaints against four out of five of the agencies which have frequently been sued in recent years – the NYPD, Department of Sanitation, Department of Transportation, and Department of Education – all dipped by one percent.
Unfortunately, the number of claims against the Health and Hospitals Corporation rose by 3.5% from 876 claims in 2014 to 907 claims in 2015.
