NFL heiress may be headed to trial for attacking California attorney with purse

A socialite charged with whacking a California lawyer in the head with her glass clutch purse and spewing anti-Semitic at his family during a boozy New Year’s Eve encounter appears to be headed to trial.

Jacqueline Kent Cooke wore a black sleeveless dress when she appeared briefly in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday for a trial date to be set in her misdemeanor assault case.

Matthew Haberkorn, 52, who is seen on a cell phone video in the aftermath of the tussle bleeding from the head, was also given a desk appearance ticket to face a count-complaint and charges related to his alleged role.

But the district attorney’s office dismissed the case and Haberkorn was not charged.

Prosecutors have recommended three months behind bars for Cooke, 30. The case was adjourned to Oct. 23 for a possible trial start.

The clash was originally investigated as a hate crime after Haberkorn’s side reported that she said to “Hurry up, Jew” to a Haberkorn relative on the coat check line at Caravaggio on E. 74th St. near Madison Ave.

Cooke and Haberkorn had an exchange on the sidewalk near the restaurant where he said he was attacked.

Cooke also claims she was roughed up and sustained a broken finger.

An attorney who previously represented Cooke, the daughter of the late former owner of Washington’s NFL team, argued in court papers that the district attorney’s office has an obligation to disclose all materials related to Haberkorn’s arrest and the decision not to go forward.

The attorney, Robert Caliendo, said Cooke was also injured and should be cleared of the charges. He pushed for all video including any unedited cell phone footage that exists to be handed over.

“As such, any video depicting the encounter is likely to exculpate Cooke and incriminate Haberkorn – wholly if not partially,” Caliendo wrote.
