New York Law Journal

By: Joel Cohen

In his latest article for the New York Law Journal, Joel Cohen tackles the question: What is the obligation of a prosecutor when a past injustice surfaces, or even begins to surface?

He writes: When an obvious injustice surfaces regarding a case previously prosecuted, shouldn’t the prosecution office and the prosecuting attorney (or his or her successor) always have at least a moral (if not ethical) obligation to move heaven and earth to try to set it right?
