Key Ruling: Judge Ronald Zweibel said, that Defense can ask about officer bovell’s past violent conduct. Cecily’s lawyers were able to once again bring up their desire to mention Officer bovell’s history of violent conduct and gained permission to question him about it.
Lawyers have spent much of the past week in pretrial arguments concerning how extensively Ms. McMillan's lawyers can reference Officer bovell's personnel record.
The prosecutor has admitted that bovell has been reprimanded for his involvement in the Bronx ticket fixing scandal-which goes to his truthfulness and ethics.
In addition, the defense will be allowed to ask about other violent incidents bovell has been involved with, including multiple suits against him.
NYPD officer grantley bovell, is also being sued by another Occupy campaigner. Austin Guest alleges bovell injured him too; on March 17th, the same night that Cecily McMillan was injured. by Jon Swaine, New York theguardian.com, Friday 4 April 2014
