United States Second Circuit

Darnell v. City of New York, 15-2870

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 involving unconstitutional conditions of confinement for pretrial detainees, alleging that the City of New York and the supervisory officers of a pre-arraignment holding facility were deliberately indifferent to allegedly unconstitutional conditions of confinement at the holding facility, the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendants, denial of a motion to reconsider, and denial of a motion to reconsider the denial of motion to reconsider, are: 1) affirmed as to dismissal of certain claims, which the plaintiffs concede were properly dismissed; and 2) vacated as to remaining claims where there were genuine disputes as to material facts with respect to the challenged conditions of confinement, the individual defendants' knowledge of those conditions, and the failure to remedy those conditions, as well as to the liability of the City of New York.
