In the spring of 2015, as chair of the Civilian Complaint Review Board, I attempted to obtain the evidence of Pantaleo’s lie, along with all the evidence of the events of July 17, 2014, by seeking production of the Staten Island grand jury records for use in the CCRB investigation. Not unexpectedly, a Staten Island judge blocked our effort. We always knew that our only viable remedy was, not in Staten Island, but in the appellate court. Precedent allows production of secret grand jury evidence under seal to an administrative agency such as the CCRB for purposes of disciplinary action. However, when we sought to appeal what we thought was an unsupportable ruling, the City Corporation Counsel ordered us not to seek review.
