Washington Examiner featured Dyson Professor Darrin Porcher in "'Exodus': 272 NYPD officers file for retirement since George Floyd's death"

Washington Examiner featured Dyson Professor Darrin Porcher in "'Exodus': 272 NYPD officers file for retirement since George Floyd's death"

Retired NYPD Lt. Darrin Porcher, who now teaches at Pace University, said there are several reasons why police don’t feel they have the support they need to do their jobs effectively.

“The lack of support from political leaders is one component. The second component is the cantankerous relationship between police and community in connection with police and community relations, and third, you just have external issues such as many family members that may feel a sense of repulsiveness to you being an officer,” he said.

"Washington Examiner" featured Pace University in "'A stronger, more humane New York': Gov. Cuomo signs bill outlawing elephant performances"

The issue of protecting elephants became a top priority for New York following a report from Pace University that found that elephants used in circuses had half the life expectancy of other elephants.

The report outlined the practice of beating elephants, limited mobility, and psychological stress as three of the contributing factors that led to early deaths for circus elephants.

"Washington Examiner" featured Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "'Bigger fish to fry': Mueller never sought interview with Mike Pence"

"Washington Examiner" featured Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "'Bigger fish to fry': Mueller never sought interview with Mike Pence"

...Pence, who reportedly submitted documents to the special counsel, echoed the White House's assessment that the report exonerated Trump. “The special counsel’s report confirms what the president and I have said since day one: There was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and there was no obstruction of justice,” he said in a statement. 

“Pence has been very marginal and peripheral to this investigation,” said Pace University law professor Ben Gershman. “Maybe they felt they had bigger fish to fry.”

Mueller notes in the report that after the FBI began an investigation into website WikiLeaks’ release of stolen emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign, an event that damaged the candidate in the last weeks of the election, Pence insisted that the Trump operation was not involved.

"Washington Examiner" featured law professor Bennett Gershman in "Mueller questions 'leak' could mean trouble for Trump lawyers: Experts"

...“It seems like the legal team disclosed it to someone outside the legal team, which is a violation of the rules, and that person disclosed it to the Times,” said Pace University law professor Bennett Gershman, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney’s office and an expert on legal misconduct.

Gershman said members of Trump’s legal team could only share the document with outside experts or White House staff with Trump’s explicit or implied permission. “A lawyer has to advise him of the risks, and then his consent is valid,” he said.

"Even if it’s negligent, sloppy, whatever — you’re violating the rules. You have to safeguard this information,” Gershman said. “This is one of the critical rules that embraces lawyer-client relationships. This is one of the most critical rules there is in our legal system.”

"Washington Examiner" featured Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "Could Trump lawyer Michael Cohen get disbarred thanks to Stormy Daniels?"

...Bennett Gershman, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and an expert on legal misconduct who teaches at Pace University’s law school, said he doubts the political nature of the case will insulate Cohen.

Gershman notes that Trump’s mentor Roy Cohn, a divisive attorney involved in congressional investigation of alleged communists in the 1950s, was disbarred in 1986 for “dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation.”

“Trump’s earlier famous lawyer Roy Cohn was disbarred. He probably was one of the most reviled lawyers to ever practice,” Gershman said. “Trump has had some questionable attorneys over the years.”
