An intermediate New York appellate court on Tuesday reversed a lower court decision barring the New York City Police Department from using or sharing information from sealed arrest records—finding the ruling lacked sufficient factual findings and was overbroad.

The decision from the Appellate Division, First Department gutted a March 2023 order in which Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lyle Frank ruled the NYPD must overhaul its software so sealed records were no longer available to officers and predictive policing technology.
