A Message from the Key

On June 22, 2021 the New York State Supreme Court struck down the NYC Diaphragm Compression law. The Key would like to congratulate the legal team for this tremendous victory. In particular, we’d like to thank and congratulate a key part of that team, our founder, retired Captain John Monaghan. In granting the motion for summary judgment, Supreme Court Justice Laurence Love cited Captain Monaghan’s Expert Opinion in the case no less than three times in pointing out that the law is unconstitutional and unenforceable. Let’s all join together in congratulating Captain Monaghan and the leaders and legal scholars who brought about this victory for not just policing in NYC, but for common sense itself.
