A nonprofit news outlet must be given documents about New York City police misconduct under a judge’s ruling, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press reported. 


THE CITY news outlet requested some 1,000 pages of records nearly two years ago, RCFP said. 


In issuing his June 7 order, New York Supreme Court Justice Lyle E. Frank “gave the NYPD 10 days to start making monthly productions” of relevant misconduct documents, according to the press-freedom group.
