The Nation

November 23, 1986

Jurors in New Haven, Conn., began deliberation of a New York City corruption case after the judge told them to ignore prosecution contentions that the four defendants had destroyed records once the probe became known. Accused in what is regarded as the biggest corruption scandal in the city since Mayor Jimmy Walker was forced to resign in 1932 are Bronx Democratic leader Stanley Friedman and three co-defendants, who were charged with seeking to corrupt the Parking Violations Bureau for personal profit. The trial was moved to New Haven because of extensive pretrial publicity in New York.
