The New York Law Journal covered this week’s arguments in a lawsuit against a special commission created by the state Legislature in New York last year to investigate complaints of misconduct filed against district attorneys and their assistants.
DAASNY was represented during arguments by Jacob Gardener. Managing Partner Jim Walden is leading the case and was also in court.
Arguments on Wednesday, which lasted nearly three hours, were before Acting Albany County Supreme Court Justice David Weinstein, who asked Gardener to justify the challenge. ‘If where, as here, there is a vague statute, which this statute is vague, a facial challenge is appropriate,’ Gardener said.
