Cuomo v. LevyPosted by Asset Forfeiture Attorney Steven Kessler.
Cuomo v. Levy, slip op., Indictment No. 17655/09 (Sup. Ct. Kings County Nov. 12, 2009) (Ingram, J.). In a case of first impression under CPLR Article 13-A, New York’s civil forfeiture statute, the Court quashed subpoenas – issued by the New York State Attorney General’s office as a matter of course – which were served on two forfeiture defendants on the ground that all discovery was stayed until the resolution of the parallel criminal proceedings.
