SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
December 22, 1969
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
ANDERSON LAVAL, APPELLANT
In a coram nobisproceeding, defendant appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County, dated September 3, 1968, which denied the application without a hearing.
Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Rabin, Hopkins and Munder, JJ., concur.
We find no merit to the claim that defendant was not represented by counsel at the preliminary hearing prior to the Grand Jury indictment. If there had been an error at such preliminary hearing, it would not have affected the validity of the indictment or the proceedings thereafter (People v. Tornetto, 16 N.Y.2d 902; People ex rel. Hirschberg v. Close, 1 N.Y.2d 258).
