Another construction supervisor and a demolition contractor were each cleared of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide charges today by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller, who said they were not responsible for the deaths of two firefighters at the former Deutsche Bank building in Lower Manhattan in 2007. According to the Daily News, Mitchel Alvo was acquitted of all charges, while the John Galt Corp. was convicted of misdemeanor reckless endangerment, which carries a likely $5,000 fine, but cleared of the two more serious charges. Last week, a Manhattan jury acquitted a senior site safety manager for Bovis Lend Lease and an asbestos abatement supervisor at the site of charges in connection with the case. Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has been under scrutiny lately between the acquittal of two police officers in a rape case, the unraveling of the attempted rape case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn and last week’s verdicts in the cases related to the Deutsche Bank building fire.
