DA Wins Court Bid To Block Release Of Sex Abuse Case Records, But Loses In The End

Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes original claim that the records sought by attorney Michael Lesher should be withheld because release would endanger prosecution was upheld. But the court noted that the extradition request has since been refused by Israel and the case is effectively closed. Therefore Lesher can file a new FOIL request to be judged again by the FOIL officer. But barring any credible evidence that Avrohom Mondrowitz can be brought back to Brooklyn for trial – and the court says it does not see any such evidence – the FOIL officer should honor Lesher's request. In other words, the DA "won" but he really lost, and Lesher "lost," but he really won.
