WE SUE NYPD

          Black Radio Network (BRN) and its principals today filed suit in New York Federal District Court, charging the New York Police Department violated the minority news service's civil rights by denying the renewal of its working press credentials. 
 
         BRN had been fully accredited by the NYPD for the past 40 years while serving radio stations with daily newsfeeds.  It is the nation's oldest such minority news service.
 
        "It appears the standard now used by the NYPD to deny the vital press credentials of Black Radio Network differs from the standard applied to non-minority oriented media," declared BRN attorney Earl Ward.  "The facts speak for themselves," said Ward.
 
         "We have waited more than a year to have our credentials renewed so that we can cover New York news, in our own style, on a equal footing with other media companies," said BRN president and news director Jay Levy.  "We have held up the worldwide distribution of our daily Minority News report at blackradionetwork.com until such time as we gain the renewal of our working press credentials by the NYPD," said Levy.  "In my more than 50 years in the New York news business, I never witnessed such discriminatory treatment by the NYPD," observed the BRN official.
