http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46095 Magistrate Judge Pollak DEFENDANTS’ COUNSEL submitted copies of redacted and unredacted documents for in camera review by the court, claiming that the redacted portions contain privileged information and are beyond the scope of the court’s previous order. In that order, the court had directed defendants to produce records relating to the conditions of confinement at Brooklyn Central Booking from 1999 to 2001, as well as training logs for the same period. The majority of the documents were redacted under the guise of the deliberative process privilege. The court determined that the majority of redactions at issue relate not to recommendations on policy issues but rather contain certain factual information that may arguably be relevant to the issues in this case, namely the conditions of the facilities in which people are housed at Brooklyn Central Booking. The court also found that while two documents contain redactions that may be protected by the privilege, they are irrelevant to the litigation.
