A judge on Thursday shot down a Staten Island cop’s attempt to delay his departmental trial for using a banned chokehold that led to the death of Eric Garner, paving the way for what will be the only public accounting of the 2014 incident that helped galvanize the Black Lives Matter movement.

A lawyer for NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo had argued that the Civilian Complaint Review Board does not have the jurisdiction to prosecute him in the trial room at One Police Plaza because the complaint against Pantaleo was filed by a woman who didn’t witness what happened July 17, 2014, when Garner died after he was forced to the ground by several cops.

Top NYPD trainer testifies Officer Daniel Pantaleo used banned chokehold in Eric Garner death A top NYPD instructor testified Tuesday that Officer Daniel Pantaleo was never trained to use a seatbelt hold, contradicting claims by the cop’s lawyer during his departmental trial for the death of Eric Garner. Inspector Richard Dee, the head of training at the NYPD Police Academy, said Pantaleo was repeatedly instructed not to use the chokehold that led to Garner’s death as he was arrested on Staten Island on July 17, 2014. Pantaleo’s lawyer Stuart London on Monday said Pantaleo used a“seatbelt” maneuver to take Garner down that was approved by the NYPD.

Police were arresting the 43-year-old Garner for allegedly selling loose untaxed cigarettes near Bay St. Cellphone video obtained by the Daily News captured Pantaleo, then 29, putting him in a chokehold banned by the NYPD and forcing him to the ground. The disturbing footage, which went viral, showed Garner pleading for help as he yelled “I can’t breathe” 11 times.

Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Joan Madden refused to issue an injunction Thursday, which would have delayed the Monday start for the departmental trial.

"It’s been five years since this tragic incident,” Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Joan Madden said. “And the Garner family, the police officer and the public should have resolution of these issues in this trial.”

Medical examiner: Chokehold triggered Eric Garner's death

Medical examiner: Chokehold triggered Eric Garner's death A medical examiner who performed an autopsy on Eric Garner says a police officer's chokehold set into motion "a lethal sequence of events" that led to his death five years ago. Dr. Floriana Persechino detailed the findings in testimony Wednesday at New York Police Department Officer Daniel Pantaleo's disciplinary trial. Persechino says hemorrhaging in neck muscles was indicative of a chokehold that set off an asthma attack and led to his death. She also reviewed video of the confrontation as well as security video showing Garner an hour earlier.

An NYPD officer accused in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man will face a departmental disciplinary trial next May - nearly five years after the man's pleas of Pantaleo was caught on camera putting Garner into that chokehold , a move that the medical examiner said contributed to his death .

Stu London, Pantaleo’s lawyer, afterwards said he was not surprised at the ruling and that he will argue at trial that Pantaleo did not use a chokehold, but rather a department approved take-down tactic.

The CCRB said Madden made the right call, as did Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr.

“They tried every trick in the book to keep the case from going forward,” Carr said. "We all seen Eric being murdered on video. It wasn’t just me. It wasn’t just an eyewitness ... It was all of us who seen Eric being murdered on camera.”

Pantaleo, who is on desk duty without his gun and shield, was cleared in Garner’s death by a Staten Island grand jury in December 2014. The feds have completed their investigation but have not yet released their findings. They have until July 17, the five-year anniversary of the incident, to do so.
