$50 million lawsuit planned in NY police shooting of unarmed black man

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 01/30/2015 - 01:06
By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - The girlfriend of an unarmed black man shot dead by a police officer in a housing project's dark stairwell notified New York City on Thursday that she plans to file a $50 million lawsuit over his death. The fatal shooting of Akai Gurley, 28, in Brooklyn in November was among a string of incidents that fueled widespread protests over what critics say is a pattern of lethal police misconduct toward minority groups. Scott Rynecki, the lawyer representing Gurley’s girlfriend, Kimberly Ballinger, and their 2-year-old daughter, said Officer Peter Liang acted "recklessly" both in drawing his gun while patrolling the project known as the Pink Houses and in firing the fatal shot. Gurley's funeral was held in December amid angry demonstrations in New York City days after a grand jury declined to indict a white police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, in the chokehold death of another unarmed black man, Eric Garner, on Staten Island.
