In re Ansong v. City of New York – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In In re Ansong v. City of New York, 308 A.D.2d 333, 764 N.Y.S.2d 182 (1st Dept 2003.), the Court held that "respondent's claimed lack of actual knowledge is completely refuted by the fact that the officers who allegedly assaulted petitioner would, as respondent's employees, have had immediate knowledge of the events giving rise to this dispute."

The Court also held that there was no prejudice to the City since "police and criminal records pertaining to petitioner's arrest, as well as the favorable disposition of charges against him, are presumably still in existence." Id.
