New York Civil Rights Lawyer Eric Sanders, Esq., of The Sanders Firm, P.C., alleges in a federal civil rights lawsuit that Steven G. Marsh was ‘falsely arrested,’ ‘maliciously prosecuted’ and subjected to a ‘cover up’ by the officers involved

New York, NY, March 28, 2018 — Steven G. Marsh alleges in a federal lawsuit, NYPD Officers Sergeant Alan Chau and Police Officer Saul Delacruz ‘falsely’ arrested him on January 1, 2017 inside the premise of the Gladyet Banquet Hall dba Gladyet Banquet Community Center, Inc., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11236, for allegedly committing the offenses of Reckless Endangerment in the Second Degree in violation of Penal Law § 120.00, Possession of Forged Instrument in the Third Degree, Operating an Unlicensed Bottle Club, Storing Alcohol Without A Permit and Criminal Nuisance in the Second Degree. Marsh claims, before he was ‘falsely arrested’ Chau and Delacruz knew he did not have an ownership interest in Gladyet Banquet Community Center, Incorporated.

Marsh claims, between February and September 2017, he appeared in Brooklyn Criminal Court on five separate occasions, only to learn that Office of the District Attorney, Kings County weren’t ready for trial. On January 8, 2018, the criminal case against Marsh cause was dismissed.

Marsh claims, throughout the legal proceedings, Chau and Delacruz never informed prosecutors he had no ownership interest in the Gladyet Banquet Hall.

Marsh claims, Chau and Delacruz interfered with and deprived him of his constitutional rights, had no ‘probable cause’ for his arrest or prosecution, and continued to ‘maliciously prosecute’ him for their own pecuniary gain.

Attorney Eric Sanders, Esq., says, “this case is yet another example of ‘abuse of power’ by NYPD officers.”

Eric Sanders, Esq., of The Sanders Firm, P.C., filed the federal complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on March 28, 2018, Steven G. Marsh v. City of New York, et al., Docket No.: 18 cv 1883.
