AD1 Orders New Proceedings after CAL Proves Trial Counsel Error

On April 26, 2018, the Appellate Division, First Department held that our client T.C.’s trial counsel took a position adverse to him when she told the trial court there was no “basis” for T.C.’s plea withdrawal motion after the court asked whether she had anything to say “on behalf of the motion.”  The Court therefore remitted T.C.’s case for further proceedings on the motion with new counsel assigned.  T.C. was represented by Megan Byrne.
