Of course the appointment started with the state governor, went to the Senate and then got rubber stamped by the NY State Bar. Deskovic has a history of receviving less than fair treatment by the NY judicial system. He was exonerated after 16 years in state prison containing years of frustration with the state’s appellate system. He received a large compensation award, became a lawyer, started a foundation to support judicial reform and watchdogs the criminal justice system. He has some choice words for the appointee Janet DiFiore’s vetting process and her saying that Deskovic’s case contained no prosecutorial misconduct. Other choice statements from her were that pros miscon is “not a problem.”
He wasn’t invited to any of the vetting proceedings. Hum, that sounds familiar.
