A teenager’s lawyer has said a trial against her in a car accident case that claimed she lost a leg is being dismissed.
Katie Dickey, 18, lost a foot in the crash in May 2016, and her case against the state is also being dismissed, according to her attorney, David Niles.
“I don’t know how this case will ever be reopened,” he said in a phone interview from New York City.
“If it’s a failure to follow procedure then that’s a separate issue.
If it’s negligence, that’s another issue.”
Ms Dickey’s lawyer, Michael A. LeBoeuf, said that although he believes the state will win the case, he believes it will be dismissed by the New York Supreme Court.
“The court has said, in my opinion, that they would like to dismiss the case.
And I think that they will, but we have to wait and see,” he told Al Jazeera.
Ms Delly is one of several high-profile cases in which high-ranking officials have been accused of corruption.
She has pleaded not guilty to charges of accepting bribes from an alleged drug trafficker, and has faced criminal charges over allegations she failed to report a traffic accident in 2012 that left her pregnant.
In November, Ms Dickey was sentenced to five years in prison after being found guilty of accepting more than $2 million in bribes in exchange for the state to approve a controversial highway project.
