Morning Brief: February 11 2016

by

The New York City Police Department is set to review a law that allows the department to evict people out of their homes. The City's nuisance-abatement law has been used mainly to shutdown drug dens and brothels. But a recent article by The Daily News has raised some eyebrows about how the NYPD has been employing the civil law. Legislation has been proposed that would force the NYPD to report publically their use of this law. [NY Daily News]
