Conclusion Meanings:

'Exonerated': or 'Within NYPD Guidelines' - the alleged conduct occurred but did not violate the NYPD's own rules, which often give officers significant discretion.
'Substantiated': The alleged conduct occurred and it violated the rules. The NYPD has discretion over what, if any, discipline is imposed.
'Unsubstantiated': or 'Unable to Determine' - CCRB has fully investigated but could not affirmatively conclude both that the conduct occurred and that it broke the rules.

Stewart, Richard, et al. vs City of New York, et al.
Case # 23CV09184, U.S. District Court - Eastern District NY, December 26, 2023
Complaint
Description: On September 8, 2023, Plaintiffs were lawfully present at a commercial location in Brooklyn when NYPD officers began to enter the premises. The officers arrested the Plaintiffs at gunpoint, despite the fact that plaintiffs were all compliant and did not attempt to resist arrest or flee. NYPD Officer Anthony Carolei completed, or caused to be completed, arrest paperwork which falsely claimed that the Plaintiffs were in criminal possession of weapons. The arrest paperwork was forwarded to the Kings County District Attorney's office, but prosecution was declined and the Plaintiffs were released from custody without being charged.
