NY's highest court upholds law banning chokeholds and diaphragm compression by police

  • New York City's highest court upheld a law that prohibits police from using chokeholds or compressing a person's torso during an arrest, after police unions challenged the law's vagueness.
  • The court ruled that officers must voluntarily apply banned force, outside the parameters of justifiable physical force, to be criminally liable under the law. The court also confirmed that it does not conflict with an existing state law banning police chokeholds.
  • The ruling provides clarity to New York City police officers, according to a spokesperson for the Police Benevolent Association.
