House of D Slapped with TRO

A Temporary Restraining Order has been issued in the case between NYC Department of Corrections and the coalition of jail opponents suing to stop the reopening of the Brooklyn House of Detention.

NYS Senator-Elect Daniel Squadron (D-SD25) issued this statement: “I commend the Department of Corrections for agreeing to halt the proposed expansion of the House of Detention pending further conversation with the community. I hope it is a sign that a new day of community input has dawned, and that we can make progress together toward replacing the jail with the affordable housing and middle school we so desperately need on this site.”

    Why didn’t the BHA join in on this? Do they want the jail?
