AP sues NJ police department over Muslim spy data
by David Porter
The Associated Press sued a New Jersey police department on Monday over its denial of a request for information stemming from a secret spying effort by New York's police department against Muslims.
The lawsuit claims the New Brunswick Police Department violated state open-records laws when it denied a request for 911 calls and radio recordings associated with a June 2009 incident at an apartment near Rutgers University.
A building superintendent discovered terrorist literature and surveillance equipment in the apartment and called 911. New Brunswick police and the FBI responded and found that the superintendent had stumbled upon a command center set up by a secret team of New York Police Department intelligence officers who had been staging undercover operations.
