Statement from LRANY Executive Director on Perry Weitz Testimony at Sheldon Silver Corruption Trial
“We challenge Mr. Silver’s defense team to show one shred of evidence where Mr. Silver bucked the legislative will of Weitz and Luxenberg or the trial lawyers. New York State has the highest medical liability costs in the nation, our asbestos court is the country’s #1 ‘Judicial Hellhole’, and we are ranked highest for ‘litigation risk’ – all due in large part to Mr. Silver’s tenure as Assembly Speaker. One has to wonder if Mr. Silver was serving the state of New York, or the trial lawyers who were paying him.”
