January 30, 2019 Download PDF

Litigation partner Martin Flumenbaum and firm chairman Brad Karp’s latest Second Circuit Review column, “Court Shifts on Effect of Using Handcuffs During Police Encounters,” appeared in the January 30 issue of the New York Law Journal. The authors discuss the implications of U.S. v.

Litigation associate Kandice Purdy assisted in the preparation of this article.
