Law Office of Rankin & Taylor Seeking People Penned in at November 2011 Protest of President Obama in Midtown Manhattan
The Law Office of Rankin & Taylor would like to speak with individuals penned in by the NYPD during an Occupy Wall Street protest on November 30, 2011, in the vicinity of the Sheraton Hotel located at Seventh Avenue and 53rd Street in Manhattan. A person who participated in the protest of President Obama’s visit to New York City and was penned in with other protestors and unable to leave the area for three hours approached Rankin & Taylor about a potential civil lawsuit. Rankin & Taylor is now exploring bringing a federal class action lawsuit on behalf of these individuals detained by the NYPD. If you were present at the protest and prevented from leaving by the NYPD, please contact Paula Segal, law clerk, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-226-4507.
