Dennis Kearney was quoted in an article,"GWB Defendants Face Tough Appeal Over Jury Instruction," in Law360. In the article, Kearney says that the defense counsel could make a strong argument on appeal challenging the jury instruction in connection with those two counts involving the conspiracy to misuse Port Authority resources and the conspiracy to deprive Fort Lee residents of their civil right. While motive is not an element of any crime, retaliation against the Fort Lee mayor appears to be an element of those two counts. "The grand jury went out of its way to name the object of the conspiracy," said Kearney. "This doesn't look like the motive to me."
