ORDER: in recognition of the difficulty the Corporation Counsel may have in identifying the John Doe Police Officer, the Corporation Counsel is directed to send plaintiff, by June 19, 2017, a blank section 160.50 release pursuant to the New York Criminal Procedure Law for sealed arrest records for the arrest that is the subject of the complaint, which plaintiff must execute and return by July 7, 2017. The Corporation Counsel must, by August 4, 2017, provide the full name of the John Doe Police Officer and an address for service. In addition, it appears that plaintiff is currently incarcerated at the Sing Sing Correctional Facility.
