Panel Discussion: NYPD Surveillance

A panel discussion on the new laws restricting NYPD surveillance of public events, with lawyers Martin Stolar, Gideon O. Oliver, and Dave Rankin.

Domestic spying takes a major setback in court. Judge Haight just released his long awaited decision in the motion to enjoin police photosurveillance of demonstrations. The videotaping or photographing by the NYPD of any individual or individuals engaging in political activity must be conducted in accordance with the Modified Handschu Guidelines, and in a manner consistent with this Opinion. There are many questions to be answered, but it seems like the police have to be in uniform while spying, and should pre-register before the spying takes place.
