NY Anti-Terror Law Diminishes Pursuit of Terrorism

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Catherine Amirfar, litigation partner at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, talks about recently obtaining a landmark victory on behalf of her client, Edgar Morales, in the first ever case of a gang member tried as a terrorist. On December 11, 2012, New York's highest court threw out manslaughter, attempted murder and weapon possession convictions of the alleged Bronx gang member who was the first defendant to be prosecuted under an antiterrorism statute passed several days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Amirfar, speaking with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck, also explains why the statute should not be applied to commonplace street violence and how the court's decision will impact other states with similar anti-terror laws.
