Training Video (Run time: 43 minutes)

The Administrative Board of the Courts has approved the adoption of a

new rule – section 202.5(e) of the Uniform Rules of the Supreme and

County Courts (22 NYCRR 202.5(e)) – requiring attorneys to omit or

redact certain confidential personal information from court filings in

Supreme and County Court.   This rule became effective on January 1,

2015; compliance is voluntary through February 28, 2015, and mandatory

thereafter. The new rule is included here. It covers both e-filed and

paper-filed cases.  …  Matrimonial actions, proceedings in Surrogate’s Court or

proceedings pursuant to Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law are

excepted from Rule 202.5(e). The Unified Court System recommends a new

form “Redaction Cover Page” … for use by persons filing

paper-filed court papers regarding confidential personal information

subject to the rule. 

The form the court recommends accompany those papers that are to be redacted. can be found at the link below:

Edits to Wikipedia pages on Bell, Garner, Diallo traced to 1 Police Plaza | Capital New York

Computers operating on the New York Police Department’s computer network at its 1 Police Plaza headquarters have been used to alter Wikipedia pages containing details of alleged police brutality, a review by Capital has revealed.

“The matter is under internal review,” an NYPD spokeswoman, Det. Cheryl Crispin, wrote in an email to Capital after examples of the changes were presented to the NYPD.

The edits and changes were linked to the NYPD through a series of Internet Protocol addresses, or IP addresses, which can be publicly tracked by various websites. (Here, for example, is one website that shows a number of IP addresses registered to the NYPD.) IP addresses can locate where a computer is when it connects to the Internet.

Furthermore, despite the Town respondents’ insistence that

the Town was not obliged or that it was not feasible to make

available to petitioners the proposed 2013 agreement before it

was put to a vote, we affirm that part of Supreme Court’s

judgment as found that the Town’s conduct in that regard denied

petitioners “any meaningful participation” in the process leading

to the final adoption of the controversial 2013 agreement, in

clear contravention of Public Officers Law § 103 (e).

The Nonhuman Rights Project-New York Cases

The Nonhuman Rights Project says it is the only organization working through the common law to achieve actual LEGAL rights for members of species other than our own. 

Their mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere “things,” which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to “persons,” who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty, and those other legal rights to which evolving standards of morality, scientific discovery, and human experience entitle them.

Their first cases were filed in December 2013, and this year they say they will file as many suits as they have funds available. 

The recent New York Chimpanzee cases are found here with related court documents and transcripts.
