How do I prove a claim for malicious prosecution by the New York City Police Department?

New York malicious prosecution is established if you prove that:

(1) the government initiated or continued prosecution against you;

(2) without probable cause to believe the proceeding can succeed;

(3) the proceeding was begun with malice; and

(4) the matter terminated in your favor.
