Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. Named a SuperLawyer by Thomson Reuters

NEW YORK – Alleging a false arrest in Bronx County, NYC, Michael J. Redenburg filed his client’s lawsuit in the Southern District of NY, which included multiple causes of action regarding the violation of his client’s civil rights.

Allegations Within the Complaint

At about 10:40 AM, the client had been in the back seat of an automobile being driven by his brother’s co-worker at or near the intersection of Grand Concourse and 188th Street, Bronx County, NY. A marked NYPD vehicle signaled for them to pull over and they complied. An officer then went to the front passenger side of the vehicle and told the firm’s client’s brother to produce identification which he began to look for. Next, the officer called for “back-up” and when the other officers arrived, the client was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. He was then taken to the 46th precinct where he was fingerprinted, photographed and processed.

The false arrest victim spent about seven hours at the police precinct and then later spent about twenty-four hours at Central Booking. At his Criminal Court Arraignment he was released on his own recognizance ROR and then returned to court three more times before the case was completely dismissed.

Michael Redenburg successfully represented the client and regularly represents victims of wrongful arrest, stop and frisk and false arrest in lawsuits against The City of New York in state and federal courts throughout New York City, and has successfully represented more than one hundred (100) NYC citizens who have been victimized by the NYPD in wrongful arrest & stop and frisk lawsuits.
