This week on New York Now, we’ll have a look back at an anti-Semitic incident in the North Country in the 1920s that ended up having a major political impact on the state. The kidnapping of a four-year-old in Massena New York, and the subsequent blame that fell on the Jewish population at the time, is the subject of New York University Professor Edward Berenson’s new book, The Accusation: Blood Libel in an American Town. Casey Seiler of the Times Union sat down with Berenson to discuss his book.

Ray Suarez chats with Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence Marks about the New York State Unified Court System’s plan to streamline the state’s complex court structure.

And Casey Seiler leads a discussion of the week’s news on the Reporters Roundtable with Bernadette Hogan of the New York Post and Dan Clark of the New York Law Journal.
