New York’s legal scene is being flooded with new arrivals and newcomers.
The number of lawsuits filed in the last month alone is expected to reach 1.7 million by the end of 2017.
It is an increase of 1,300 percent over the same period last year.
But for the legal community, it has been a whirlwind of a start to the year.
The New York State Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in two lawsuits filed last month on the same issues: whether a man can be held criminally liable for assaulting his ex-girlfriend in a public park, and whether a police officer violated his civil rights when he arrested a woman.
Both lawsuits were brought by women.
Both cases involve a lawsuit alleging a police shooting of a man in a parking lot.
One of the lawsuits is challenging a New York state law that requires all people charged with a felony to be held for 24 hours without bail or the possibility of bail.
The other case is challenging New York police’s use of body cameras during an investigation of an officer-involved shooting.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is leading the investigation, said the videos are important in determining whether police actions violated the man’s constitutional rights.
“The video is critical in determining the propriety of an arrest,” Schneiderman said in a statement.
“It is essential that New Yorkers understand that the use of deadly force against a suspect can never be justified.”
The videos were released to the public on Tuesday.
One video shows a man lying in a pool of blood on a sidewalk after he was shot in the leg by an NYPD officer.
The video shows the officer’s body camera recording him, and the audio appears to be edited, though the police officer can be heard making comments about how the man had his hands up when he was in the car.
Police said the man was a “felon” and “danger to himself and others,” but Schneiderman’s office has refused to release the videos.
Another video shows an officer dragging a woman into a vehicle.
She is bleeding from the mouth and face, and appears to have been restrained by the officer and the man.
Police did not release the name of the officer involved.
Police say the video also shows the man being punched in the face by the officers.
Schneiderman has said that officers are under no obligation to record video when they are in plain view of people or in plain sight of police cars, but he has refused in each case to release any footage of the arrests.
A woman is seen in the second video being dragged into a car by police officers after being arrested.
Another woman in the video is seen being taken into custody and handcuffed.
In the first video, an officer is seen pushing a woman to the ground, which is not recorded.
Schneidermen has said the officer has a right to use deadly force, but has not released the name.
Police have not released any video of the officers who arrested the woman.
The second lawsuit involves a man who was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing in a park.
The woman’s boyfriend was visiting from New Jersey and she and her boyfriend had gone to the park with their dogs to play.
The boyfriend was walking to the back of the park when a police car approached and began questioning him, according to the lawsuit.
He asked the officers why he was being stopped, and an officer responded that he was trespassing and was trying to reach his car.
The lawsuit also says that officers had a right not to pursue the man because he was not a criminal.
The man had a court order against him that said he had to stay away from the park and that he had broken a leash and leash-whip law.
The suit also alleges that officers “attempted to restrain the man with a Taser.”
Police said in an email to The Associated Press that they have not yet seen the video and did not comment.
The police department did not respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit from The Associated Media.
In addition to the lawsuits, Schneiderman is also investigating a police-involved death.
He has said a police helicopter in an unmarked car was not following a roadblock that appeared to be marked with yellow tape.
Schneider said on Monday that the officer who shot the man did not have a badge or a body camera.
A man who called 911 from the back seat of a police vehicle was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound.
Police officials have not commented on that case, but have said the officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.
