  mergency incident involving a member of a protected class

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 79-n of the civil rights  law,  as
added by chapter 227 of the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
  2.  Any person who intentionally selects a person or property for harm
or causes damage to the property of another or causes physical injury or
death to another OR SUMMONS A POLICE OFFICER OR  PEACE  OFFICER  WITHOUT
REASON  TO  SUSPECT  A  VIOLATION  OF  THE PENAL LAW, ANY OTHER CRIMINAL
CONDUCT, OR AN IMMINENT THREAT TO A PERSON OR PROPERTY, in whole  or  in
substantial  part  because of a belief or perception regarding the race,
color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious  practice,
age, disability or sexual orientation of a person, regardless of whether
the  belief or perception is correct, shall be liable, in a civil action
or proceeding maintained by such individual or group of individuals, for
injunctive relief, damages, or any other appropriate relief  in  law  or
equity.  If  it shall appear to the satisfaction of the court or justice
that the respondent has, in fact, violated this section,  an  injunction
may  be  issued  by such court or justice, enjoining and restraining any
further violation, without requiring proof that any person has, in fact,
been injured or damaged thereby. FOR THE PURPOSES  OF  THIS  SECTION,  A
PERSON  LACKS  REASON TO SUSPECT A VIOLATION OF THE PENAL LAW, ANY OTHER
CRIMINAL CONDUCT, OR AN IMMINENT THREAT TO A PERSON OR PROPERTY WHERE  A
REASONABLE PERSON WOULD NOT SUSPECT SUCH VIOLATION, CONDUCT, OR THREAT.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
