Appeals court throws out D'Ambrosio's suit over wrongful prosecution
Federal immunity applies
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE


Web Editor

In The Region:

A federal appeals court says a judge was right to throw out a lawsuit accusing Cuyahoga County prosecutors and police of withholding evidence in a murder case.

Joe D’Ambrosio of North Royalton sued after his conviction in the 1989 murder of Anthony Klann was overturned and he was released from prison in 2010. He had been on death row.

In overturning the conviction, a federal judge said prosecutors withheld evidence and “trampled” on D’Ambrosio’s rights. But he also ruled that prosecutors were covered by immunity.

The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with that today.

Separately, D’Ambrosio is suing the state for wrongful imprisonment.

 

Listener Comments:

Cuyahoga county are the most corrupt in the USA after Texas, they put people in prison for life on the word of liars and con men, you need to rethink your judicial system if anyone in the world is to have faith in your sentencing and laws

No one should be above the law. If it was proven they withheld evidence and put an innocent man on death row they should damn well be held accountable!
