The resignations come in the middle of their presentation of evidence to a grand jury.
The future of the high-stakes case is now in serious doubt. Especially, after reports the resignations come after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg expressed his doubts about the case moving forward.
The two prosecutors, Carey R. Dunne and Mark F. Pomerantz declined to elaborate on why they had resigned.
Reasons for Bragg’s new approach are unknown but the lack of commitment was evidence last month when the prosecutors postponed a plan to question a witness before the grand jury.
