A former city chief medical examiner is set to review Eric Garner's final autopsy report today.

Garner's family attorney, Sanford Rubenstein, says in accordance with a Supreme Court order, Dr. Michael Baden will examine all of the records and remains of Garner at the city medical examiner's office.

Garner died in July after being placed in an alleged chokehold while police were trying to arrest him for illegally selling cigarettes.

In August, the medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Dr. Baden is the same expert who conducted an autopsy on 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot by a police officer in Missouri last month. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
