NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — An appeals court is revisiting the issue of whether the grand jury record in the Eric Garner police chokehold death case should stay sealed.
The three-judge panel heard arguments Tuesday in Brooklyn.
A judge on Staten Island had ruled in March that the records would remain under seal. The parties seeking the release of the minutes appealed. They include the New York Civil Liberties Union, the Legal Aid Society and the city public advocate’s office.
