ruling

NEW YORK (PIX11) — A judge could rule Thursday that a federal takeover of Rikers Island is needed to overhaul the detention complex, despite the protests of New York City leaders including Mayor Eric Adams.

In the ruling, the federal judge could maintain the status quo by maintaining federal monitoring of Rikers, or opt to go a step further by having a federal receiver take over the facility, which has been troubled by inmate deaths and violent attacks.
