Capitol Pressroom

Sept. 24, 2014: James Featherstonhaugh, Donna Lieberman, Bruce Gyory, Tom Stebbins

Attorney and long-time Albany lobbyist James Featherstonhaugh, who is also co-owner of Saratoga Harness, joins us in the studio to discuss the intense interest in casino siting in New York. Featherstonhaugh has an interest in both the Hudson Valley Casino and Resort which would be built in Newburgh, Orange County and the East Greenbush Capital View Casino.

A new report published by the New York Civil Liberties Union underscores the state’s failure to provide adequate legal representation to poor people convicted of crimes. Our guest will be Donna Lieberman, Executive Director of the NYCLU who will share details from the report, and update us Hurrell-Harring v. State of NY, a lawsuit which is related to the issue.

What are the big takeaways from the primary? Bruce Gyory, a Senior Strategist at Manatt Phelps Phillips and a UAlbany Adjust professor of Political Science has about 6 ideas.

Tom Stebbins, Executive Director of the Lawsuit Reform Alliance discusses the costs of medical malpractice in New York.
