A forensic expert chosen by Eric Garner's family is set to review the Staten Island man's final autopsy report on Friday morning.

Garner's family attorney, Sanford Rubenstein, says in accordance with a Supreme Court order, Dr. Michael Baden will examine all of the records and remains of Garner at the city medical examiner's office.

Garner died in July after being placed in a chokehold while police were trying to arrest him for illegally selling cigarettes.

In August, the medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Dr. Baden is the same expert who conducted an autopsy on 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot by a police officer in Missouri last month.
