De Blasio Lifts NYC Curfew Under Threat Of Lawsuit

The New York Post reports:

Mayor Bill de Blasio lifted the Big Apple’s controversial curfew a day early in an unexpected announcement Sunday morning.

“New York City: We are lifting the curfew, effective immediately,” Hizzoner tweeted, ending the planned final night of the city shutting down to help curb looting and violent protests that plagued the city earlier in the week.

The mayor had ordered the curfew last Monday alongside Gov. Andrew Cuomo, after vandals used mass demonstrations spurred by the videotaped in-custody death of George Floyd as cover to loot stores.
