New York Criminal Procedure Law Sections 160.50 and 160.55.

In the matter of R.C v. City of New York, a putative class action case held that the NYPD’s policy and practice of maintaining, using, and disclosing sealed arrest records violated New York Criminal Procedure Law Sections 160.50 and 160.55.

The NYPD was alleged to have maintained databases with sealed information which they used for investigation purposes. The court held that this practice or policy, violated individuals’ rights when the sealed records are accessed without a court order.
