United States Third Circuit

Hasan v. City of New York, 14-1688

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 case contending that the New York Police Department has secretly conducted a surveillance program monitoring Muslims since 9/11, the district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss for lack of standing and failure to state a claim is reversed where 1) plaintiffs have standing to seek relief in federal courts; 2) plaintiffs have stated an equal protection claim; and 3) classifications based on religious affiliation are subject to heightened scrutiny under the Equal Protection Clause.
