INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Benjamin Weiser reports: “A federal judge has ruled that the New York Police Department illegally arrested large numbers of demonstrators at a protest in Lower Manhattan during the 2004 Republican National Convention. But the judge upheld aspects of how the city had handled the protesters’ arrests.”

Mosi Secret writes: “After years of legal maneuvering in a case that accuses the New York Fire Department of discriminating against minority applicants, the people who would be most directly affected by the outcome got their day in court on Monday, and the testimony was largely predictable. The speakers generally fell into two camps. Most were white firefighters, already on the force, arguing that the remedies ordered by a judge would open the department to applicants of lower caliber and take jobs away from white applicants who performed better on the entrance exams.”

New York Post

David Seifman reports: “A city appeals panel has refused to overturn a $594,375 fine slapped on former Comptroller Bill Thompson for illegally putting up 7,925 campaign posters on public property when he ran for mayor in 2009, it was disclosed yesterday. The Environmental Control Board rejected Thompson’s argument that his top campaign aides ordered volunteers not to break the law, but that some didn’t listen.”

Carl Campanile writes: “Republicans believe they have a potent campaign weapon to use against their Democratic opponents: Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. State Republicans sent a mailing to thousands of Westchester County voters asking why the Democratic candidate for Senate, Assemblyman George Latimer, is ‘defending’ Silver, who’s under investigation for a confidential settlement with two women who accused Assemblyman Vito Lopez of sexual harassment.”

New York Daily News

A News trio reports: “A whopping 217 elementary and middle schools scored so poorly on the city’s annual progress reports that they are in danger of being shut down.”

Until tomorrow.
