New York's Special Prosecutor Laws Warrant Reform

This case, which was featured in the New York Times, serves as a prime example of why the special prosecutor law in New York must be reformed. Here, an attorney who had been criticized by an appellate court for his prior performance as a special prosecutor was, inexplicably, again appointed to that role, this time to investigate purported campaign improprieties in a 2009 City Council election in Staten Island. The request for a special prosecutor by the Staten Island District Attorney and the reasons therefor remain under seal. The selection process for how this particular lawyer was chosen similarly remains hidden from view. Transparency in the selection process should be the first step toward reform.
