On March 27, 2018, Stamford attorney Audrey Felsen of Koffsky & Felsen filed suit in federal court
seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against the town of Windsor Locks. The suit, on behalf of
plaintiffs One Standard of Justice, Inc. and a Windsor Locks resident identified as John Doe, challenges
the constitutionality of Windsor Locks’ “Child Safety Zones” ordinance.
“This suit is for declaratory and injunctive relief from an overly broad ordinance that clearly violates
the first and fourteenth amendments of the United States Constitution,” said Felsen. “The plaintiffs are
subjected to substantial discrimination, prejudice and irrational fears because of false concerns of an
“alarmingly high” recidivism rate among a discrete category of citizens.”
