New trial. A federal judge dealt a stinging setback to the city and the police yesterday by overturning a jury verdict that had cleared the city of liability in the 1999 police shooting of an emotionally disturbed man who was clutching a hammer. This case arose out of events that occurred in my neighborhood of Brooklyn. I've never been quite clear on how I come out -- with the family of Gidone Busch or with the officers of the 66th Precinct (which is right across the street from my apartment). Anyway, for more info, click here.
