Against mayor's wishes, judge orders City to release report on 911 system
The Bloomberg administration has one week to release a report about the city's 911 and emergency dispatch system, a judge ruled Monday.
Arguing in favor of transparency, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron ruled that the document isn't truly private. The city claims, however, it's only a draft and isn't ready yet.
Two fire unions are trying to subpoena the report to show that the city's 911 system has not improved, even with $2 billion in improvements.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg questioned Monday having to put studies out that are not completed.
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said the public deserves to see the report "because lives literally hang in the balance when it comes to the performance of our emergency response network."
