Medical Examiner Blasted Toxicologist For Challenging DNA Test

October 21, 2018

The Post summarizes the latest developments in the whistleblower retaliation suit against the New York City’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME). The plaintiff, represented Kevin Mintzer and co-counsel, alleges that she pushed for OCME to disclose the scientific basis of its controversial DNA analysis program, and as a result she was fired from her job as the head of OCME’s toxicology laboratory after 29 years of service. The court recently rejected the OCME’s effort to have the case dismissed, and a trial is scheduled for the spring.
