A federal judge upheld an earlier ruling denying a request by the New York Police Department to be allowed to file a secret affidavit in a law suit involving the department’s arrests and detaining of people protesting at the 2004 Republican convention. In the initial ruling, Federal Magistrate James Francis denied Cohen’s request, calling it “antithetical to our adversary system of justice.” District Judge Richard Sullivan upheld that decision.
