Hamilton.   In Hamilton, the Second Department allowed a freestanding actual innocence claim under New York law.   While courts in some other states, including state appellate courts, have recognized such actual innocence claims, whether such claims should be recognized, and if so under what circumstances, is a very live issue in the federal courts and numerous state courts throughout the country.
