Perez Grand Juror Releases Some Parts of Report

By Jeffrey B. Cohen

July 28, 2009

The grand juror in the case of Mayor Eddie A. Perez has released portions of his report dealing with the background and scope of his investigation.

In the report, Judge Dennis Eveleigh outlines the basics of the investigation -- there were 32 sessions with testimony from 150 witnesses and 316 items of documentary evidence. He also outlines potential criminal violations, including fabrication of physical evidence, criminal attempt to commit first degree larceny, conspiracy to commit first degree larceny, first degree larceny by extortion, and fraudulent voting.

8:15 p.m. Update: The portions of the report were released Tuesday after correspondence involving the Courant, the chief clerk of the appellate court, and Eveleigh. To see the Courant's letter sent Monday, after the newspaper sought, and was refused, access to this portion of the report:, click on the link in the "Related Links" box.

To see an order from the clerk of the Supreme Court to Eveleigh, asking him if he meant to seal the portions released Tuesday, click on the link in the "Related Links" box.

And here is Eveleigh's response:

ARTICULATION: The Court intended, by its language, that where there was no Petition for Review as to Sections I and II, these sections should be released to the Public. Therefore, the Clerk should be ordered to release Sections I and II of the Report.

The Court

Dennis Eveleigh, Judge
