Gregory Chavis (2452)



10/9/2004: While leaving a movie theater Chavis and friends got into a verbal altercation with another group, and Chavis was shot by an unknown person. He was left bleeding on the sidewalk. His family and a witness contended that NYPD deliberately delayed medical attention for half an hour, with Lincoln Hospital only a block away, and caused Chavis's death. In a wrongful death proceeding the state's defense included the assertion that "Chavis had no constitutional right to medical treatment". http://law.justia.com/cases/new-york/appellate-division-first-department/2012/6290-21167-06.html
