The police officers' union Monday won a court battle with the NYPD over body cameras, prohibiting the department from releasing any more footage until a panel of judges takes up the case.
The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association sued over the release of body camera footage, arguing that it's a personnel record. Over the past year, the NYPD has released footage from several high-profile shootings in an attempt to show that they were justified.
The union and the city are expected submit briefs for a full judicial review by June 5.
In a separate case, NY1 has been suing the city to get access to footage from an NYPD body camera pilot program in 2015.
