Defense Comes Out Swinging in Highly Publicized Long Island Dumping Trial

CBS News New York

At a criminal dumping trial within which his clients were charged with nearly a dozen felony counts for having allegedly released tons of hazardous contamination within a public park, attorney Andrew J. Campanelli began his opening statement before the jury with a line from the movie My Cousin Vinny. “Everything that guy just said was bull****.

“In twenty-five years of litigation and trials, I have never uttered anything like that in any federal or state court anywhere within the Country. But in this case, it was the right opening statement to make.” – Andrew J. Campanelli

All charges against Mr. Campanelli’s clients were dismissed before the defense began the presentation of their case.
