After an administrative judge on Friday morning recommended the firing of Daniel Pantaleo, the New York City Police Department officer involved in the death of Eric Garner, New York Attorney General Letitia James and other attorneys urged Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill to accept that judgment.

But de Blasio, during a press conference held Friday, declined to say whether a final decision had been made to fire Pantaleo from the NYPD. He said that decision, under state law, will rest with O’Neill.
