NYPD asks for dismissal of lawsuit by US Muslims
Lawyers for New York City on Friday asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by New Jersey Muslims over its police-run surveillance program.

 

The lawsuit doesn't prove its claims that the New York Police Department's intelligence-gathering activities were unconstitutional, that they harmed the plaintiffs or that they focused on people based on religion, national origin or race, a city attorney wrote in a filing released Friday. (AP)
