Port Authority of New York and New Jersey currently stands as a defendant in a court of law for arresting gay men without any legal reason to do it, AP reports. The lawsuit claims that police officers patrol the bus station bathrooms, attempt to gain the interest of men perceived as gay or bi and then charge them of crimes they did not commit. It was filed on behalf of plaintiffs by Winston and Strawn LLP and the Legal Aid Society. It reads: “The PAPD have continued to make such targeted arrests knowing or believing that most of those arrested will ultimately be forced to plead to lesser charges to avoid public embarrassment and humiliation, costly legal fees, and jail sentences, as well as reputational and professional harm associated with the false charges”. “The use of police assets and resources in this unconstitutional and unconscionable way is particularly stunning in light of the world in which we live,” said Thomas Patrick Lane, partner with Winston & Strawn. The authorities are yet to comment the situation.
