Bloomberg on Monday to release what is said to be a sharply critical report on New York’s costly, much-delayed emergency dispatch system, but gave the city a week to appeal.

Engoron of State Supreme Court in Manhattan, said the city’s rationale for suppressing the review of the $2.3 billion 911 call-handling system called to mind President Richard M. Nixon’s obfuscations during the Watergate scandal. ‘Nixon kept claiming executive privilege,’ the judge said. ‘The public and the courts didn’t buy it.’ “
