ABC 7 featured Haub Law Professor Randolph McLaughlin in "7 On Your Side Investigates: Tax payer funds used to settle NYPD use of force claims"

"There's no accountability," said attorney Randolph McLaughlin, who has been involved with more than a dozen suits against the NYPD over the past few decades. "I think we're going to see an explosion in these cases in the next year."

McLaughlin believes the number of civil cases could increase due to the large number of protests this year, more people taking cell phone video and the passing of new laws.

The mayor announced officer disciplinary records will be posted online soon and body camera footage will be released each time force is used or an injury or death occurs.

"So we all can get a birds eye view of what has happened and what is happening in our departments," McLaughlin said.
