There’s a notice of claim against the city of Schenectady.
It’s from the family of a New York City man who died while in custody of Schenectady Police earlier this year.
Normally that’s seen as a precursor to a formal lawsuit.
According to the Gazette, the notice accuses police of failing to respond properly to Andrew Kearse's medical issues.
The 36-year-old Kearse died on May 11th after he led officers on a brief foot chase.
He said he was dizzy and could not breathe in the patrol car, and was unresponsive when officers got to police headquarters.
The claim seeks damages of $25 million.
