The New Jersey Supreme Court unanimously ruled to let a lawsuit against two Newark police officers move forward; the lawsuit was brought by a man who says he was wrongfully targeted for a string of robberies. The recent ruling upheld a lower court’s decision to dismiss the officers’ request to be protected by qualified immunity and stated they don’t have an automatic right to appeal such an order.
