Judge Releases Limited Details On Eric Garner Grand Jury

NEW YORK, Dec 4 (Reuters) - The New York grand jury that voted not to charge a white police officer in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man heard testimony from 50 witnesses and considered 60 exhibits over the course of nine weeks of deliberations, a state judge said on Thursday.

The details came in a brief order from Stephen Rooney, a judge in Staten Island, who granted the request of Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan to release publicly some details about the secret proceeding. (Reporting by Joseph Ax; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
