Judge: Keep documents closed in NY student’s death

A federal judge has temporarily banned the public release of any

documents or video related to civil rights lawsuits brought over

the fatal shooting of a college football player by police.

The Journal News in White Plains (http://lohud.us/sTDXN0)

reported Saturday that U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas signed the

order requested by parties in the civil cases stemming from Danroy

Henry Jr.’s death.

Police fatally shot the Pace University student in October 2010

as the 20-year-old drove away from a ruckus outside a bar in

Thornwood, N.Y. A federal grand jury cleared a Pleasantville, N.Y.,

police officer of wrongdoing.

Brian Sokoloff, a lawyer for the officer, told the newspaper the

temporary order gives everyone time to agree on what ”sensitive”

materials they want the court to keep confidential permanently.
