New York – A civil rights lawsuit has been filed against the New York Police Department over spying programs purportedly targeted toward Muslims, which are stated to discourage residents from freely practicing their religion. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), civil rights attorneys in the case are seeking to have the programs declared unconstitutional and the surveillance stopped.

As noted in the report, the lawsuit was filed Tuesday against New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and police commissioner Raymond Kelly and the deputy commissioner of intelligence, David Cohen were also named.

The complaint is quoted by the AP as stating, “Through the Muslim Surveillance Program, the NYPD has imposed an unwarranted badge of suspicion and stigma on law-abiding Muslim New Yorkers, including plaintiffs in this action.”

The American Civil Liberties Union, the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility project at CUNY School of Law and the New York Civil Liberties Union are representing the plaintiffs in the case.
