Reinvent Albany Joins Amicus Brief Defending Repeal of 50-a


Common Cause New York, Reinvent Albany, Citizens Union and BetaNYC filed an amicus brief this week defending the repeal of 50-a, a provision that has been interpreted to shield police personnel records from Freedom of Information requests. The law was repealed following the nationwide protests that erupted after the alleged murder of George Floyd in May 2020.
