    NEW YORK (AP) — The family of a man who died after being placed in a police chokehold has filed a notice of claim to sue the city, its police department and six officers for $75 million.

    Eric Garner's family filed the notice, the first legal step toward suing over the 43-year-old's death, on Monday.

    A spokesman for city Comptroller Scott Stringer said Tuesday that the claim is under review. The city's Law Department said it will review the claim thoroughly. The New York Police Department did not immediately comment on the notice of claim.

    Family names new lawyer in $75 million New York chokehold lawsuit

    Speaking at a news conference with civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton in Harlem, Eric Garner's family said civil rights attorney Jonathan Moore will replace Sanford Rubenstein, said Jacky Johnson, a spokeswoman for Sharpton's National Action Network.

    Rubenstein, a prominent attorney with close ties to Sharpton, earlier said he stepped aside earlier this week in the wake of a police investigation into a 42-year-old woman's allegation that he assaulted her sexually in his Manhattan apartment. He has denied any criminal wrongdoing.

    Moore, who will now handle the Garner case, helped represent the five men in the high-profile Central Park Jogger case, who were jailed for lengthy terms on charges of raping and beating a runner in Central Park. The men were eventually exonerated, and they recently settled a wrongful conviction lawsuit with the city for $41 million.

    I hate to say this Framily, but its not a good look for Al. In the Post above we have this:

    "Speaking at a news conference with civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton in Harlem, Eric Garner's family said civil rights attorney Jonathan Moore will replace Sanford Rubenstein, said Jacky Johnson, a spokeswoman for Sharpton's National Action Network.

    Rubenstein, a prominent attorney with close ties to Sharpton, earlier said he stepped aside earlier this week in the wake of a police investigation into a 42-year-old woman's allegation that he assaulted her sexually in his Manhattan apartment. He has denied any criminal wrongdoing."




    Sharpton friend and gambling company owe $72M in taxes: authorities

    An associate of the Rev. Al Sharpton who is trying to open a glitzy upstate casino is an accused tax deadbeat — joining another pal of the preacher and the rev’s own National Action Network as targets of tax collectors.

    Alabama authorities claim that Greenetrack and its CEO, Luther Winn, Jr., owe $72 million in sales taxes and interest from electronic bingo game revenue in its betting facilities in that state.

    Winn, who serves on the network’s board, is the lead partner in the bid to open a massive 140-acre Grand Hudson casino resort near Stewart Airport in Orange County.

    If Al updates this situation on his show, PoliticsNation, I'll let you know about it.

    I can't hardly breathe Framily, this is outrageous and must stop. Let's drop our so-called differences and do something from this Site to contribute to what appears to be a National Movement for Justice ... what say you?




    NYC grand jury to return no indictment in police choke hold case


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York City grand jury decision not to charge a white police officer who killed an unarmed black man with a chokehold sparked outrage and protests on Wednesday, and the U.S. Justice Department said it would investigate the incident.

    Eric Garner, a 43-year-old father of six, was illegally selling cigarettes on July 17 when police officers tackled him and put him in a chokehold. Police said he had been resisting arrest. The city's medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.

    A New York City grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, Wednesday in the July chokehold death of an unarmed black man, Eric Garner, in a case that drew comparisons to the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the subsequent clearing of officer Darren Wilson.

    Ok Brother Clyde you know I am with you. But Only when the American negro understands "A system cannot fail those it was never meant to protect" W E B Dubois. Then we can do something. Until we stop hoping yt will change we have no hope. Any Black person that thought an incitement would come in the mike Brown case is a part of the problem. Then Eric Garner

    This seems to be the norm now, white cops kills blacks, and they get set free. It just gives more weight to my view that the survivors need to stop letting these agenda driven "supporters" tell them to make peace and trust in the system. And to be honest., Al, and Jesse would be the last two people I run to for help. Look at the drama that surrounds them?

    Peace!

    Are you sure about the above statement?

    Most folk find the Grand Jury's failure to render an indictment in the choke-hold death of Eric and the six shot killing of Michael, incomprehensible, to include the wife of Eric Garner, Esaw Garner and the mother of Michael Brown, Lesley McSpadden (Louis Head) ...
