Construction; inconsistent laws
Civil Rights (CVR) CHAPTER 6, ARTICLE 8
§ 84. Construction; inconsistent laws. This article shall be liberally
construed to effectuate its objects and purposes and the public policy
of the state as hereby declared. If any part of this article, or its
application to any persons or circumstances, is adjudged by a court to
be invalid or ineffectual, such judgment shall not affect the remainder
of the article or its application to any other person or circumstances.
This article shall supersede all laws inconsistent with it to the extent
of such inconsistency, but in all other respects shall be deemed
supplemental to such laws. Nothing contained in this article shall be
construed as a repeal of any provision of the penal law or the criminal
procedure law or any other law relating to criminal or quasi-criminal
actions or proceedings.
