NYC Judge blocks review board from viewing Eric Garner grand jury records

A judge has once again blocked the re­lease of sealed grand jury re­cords re­lated to the death of Eric Garner at the hands of New York City po­lice of­ficers last sum­mer. The city’s Ci­vil­ian Com­plaint Re­view Board, an ad­vis­ory pan­el that mon­it­ors NYPD prac­tices, sued to ob­tain cop­ies of grand jury testi­mony this year, after re­peated chal­lenges to make the re­cords pub­lic had failed.
