Deleon v. City of New York, et al. SDNY Case No. 20-CV-8796 (VEC)
Dear Judge Caproni:
My office, together with co-counsel, represents the plaintiff, Andrew DeLeon, in the
above-referenced civil-rights case against the City of New York and against several
police officers for false arrest and excessive force.
I am writing because Plaintiff's counsel has been trying to get notarized releases
from our client, but has been unable to do so because he is in custody in the
Dominican Republic based on charges completely unrelated to this case. Mr.
DeLeon has been able to sign the various release forms, but has not been able to get
them notarized in prison and Mr. DeLeon does not know how long he will be
I am attaching copies of the releases with personal identifiers removed, so Your
Honor can see that they have, in fact, been signed. Plaintiff requests that in light of
these unusual circumstances, Your Honor issue an order directing the various
agencies and hospitals to comply with the releases, even though they have not been
notarized. Defendant City of New York consents to this request.
I was finalizing this letter when I received Your Honor’s minute order directing that
Plaintiff explain the delay in this case. No fault lies with the defendants or their
counsel. As explained above, my co-counsel and I have been having difficulty
moving this case ahead, because of the unusual situation that has arisen and the
parties believe that an order directing the acceptance of the un-notarized release
will help expedite matters.
/s/ Brian L. Bromberg
