NYC 'Wrong Man' Files $30M Suit
A man who served nearly two decades behind bars for a wrongful murder conviction wants more than $30 million in damages for his ordeal, The New York Post reports.
Fernando Bermudez filed suit in Manhattan federal court against the city and the cops and prosecutors who put him away.
In 1992, Bermudez, then 22, was found guilty of fatally shooting 16-year-old Raymond Blount outside the Marc Ballroom in Union Square following a fight inside the club.
After 11 appeals, Bermudez's conviction was tossed and the charges dismissed by a judge who said a key witness lied about him being the shooter.
