State Supreme Court Dismisses Indictment Against Pierides

On February 5, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, granted a motion to dismiss an April 18, 2018, indictment that alleged Kyriacos Pierides engaged in public corruption and bribery of a public official. The broader criminal investigation included an examination of DOT-funded construction projects in New York—specifically, the Kosciuszko Bridge reconstruction funded by the Federal Highway Administration through the NYS-DOT, and various NYS Metropolitan Transportation Authority subway system projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration.
