Morgenthau Praises Vance on DSK Case



    (Published Friday, July 1, 2011)

    The longtime former Manhattan district attorney is praising how his successor has handled the sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

    Robert Morgenthau issued a statement Thursday saying current Manhattan DA Cyrus R. Vance Jr. has upheld the office's commitment "to seek justice over everything else."

    Morgenthau says he met this week with Vance, who took office in 2010. Morgenthau retired after 35 years in the job and endorsed Vance.

    Vance has faced some criticism since prosecutors said last week that their high-profile case against the former International Monetary Fund leader had weakened because his accuser had a history of being untruthful. The DA says his office acted appropriately in pursuing the case, and then by revealing its newfound doubts.
