NY Court Upholds Ethics Commission Subpoena Power

Sep 4, 2013

New York's top court won't hear the appeal from the ex-chief of the State University of New York Research Foundation accused of giving a no-show job to the daughter of a powerful legislator.

The Court of Appeals, rejecting without comment John O'Connor's request, leaves intact a lower court's ruling that state ethics officials can subpoena his testimony.
