In another move to end the case against a Morgan Stanley banker charged with stiffing and stabbing a Queens, N.Y., cab driver, Bridgeport lawyer Gene Riccio has filed a supplemental motion to dismiss the case based on “false statements and material omissions” filed by Darien Police in the arrest warrant.
It’s a case of one man’s word against another’s. One, a Queens cab driver of Egyptian descent, faces another, a white Morgan Stanley banker from Darien, in a court battle over a ride that ended in a haze of competing facts, allegations and a bloodied hand.
A Knollwood Lane man faces charges of assault, larceny and racially-charged intimidation after a December cab ride from Manhattan to Darien went awry. But, according to the man’s lawyer, he was abducted by the driver.
