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.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
