Doe v. Cuomo, 755 F.3d 105 (2nd Cir. 2014)
Nature of Case: Doe brought § 1983 lawsuit in EDNY subsequent to changes in New York state law that extended his registration requirement and eliminated ability of individuals who were determined to be “level one” sex offenders to petition for relief from registration. Doe alleged that these amendments violated Ex Post Facto and Due Process provisions as well as equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment. District Court granted summary judgment for the state, and Doe appealed
Holding: Second Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that subsequent amendments to state law did not violate Ex Post Facto, Due Process, Equal Protection, Fourth Amendment, nor did they constitute a breach of his original plea agreement.
