Court of Appeals Denies Disciplinary Powers for Rochester PAB

The state's highest court, the Court of Appeals, has upheld a lower court decision leaving discipline of Rochester police officers to their union contract, not Rochester's Police Accountability Board, created in 2019.

Four judges sided with the majority, and three dissented.

The Court noted the City of Rochester acted in 1985 to leave discipline to its collective bargaining with the Police Locust Club.

The Court ruled the state's Taylor Law is in control of the policies, absent action by the state legislature to change it.
