A New York State Bar Association task force report recommends adding hate crimes to the list of offenses that allow for eavesdropping and video surveillance warrants.

The recommendation was outlined in a report from the association’s Task Force on Domestic Terrorism and Hate Crimes. The task force was convened after an attack during a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey in which a man stabbed five people. The attacker had rushed into a rabbi’s home.
