Miller et al. v. City of New York et al.

Cuti Hecker Wang obtained a $53 million settlement on behalf of a class of pre-trial detainees and parolees who claim that the New York City Department of Correction purposefully evaded limitations on the use of solitary confinement by placing inmates in unlawful stealth restrictive housing facilities.  The settlement received extensive coverage in the New York Times, New York Post, and New York Law Journal.  Our co-counsel, Alex Reinert of Cardozo Law School, discussed the settlement on Inside City Hall.
