The Indignant Indigent blog is back online. Beginning immediately, Assistant Monroe County Public Defender David Abbatoy will take over blogging duties for this website. Mr. Abbatoy works in the Public Defender's Appeals Bureau and has briefed approximately 100 appellate cases, including cases before the Fourth Department and Court of Appeals. The Indignant Indigent will continue its focus on analysis of recent Fourth Department and Court of Appeals decisions, and will also begin to highlight notable decisions from the other appellate departments.
The site's former blogger, Brian Shiffrin, has become a member of the law firm of Easton, Thompson, Kasperek, and Shiffrin, and currently maintains the excellent "New York Criminal Defense Blog" available here.
