OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecution's Brady violation for failure to disclose a police report affecting the credibility of a key witness did not warrant a reversal of the conviction. "[T]he People committed a Brady violation by failing to disclose a police report affecting the credibility of their key witness, but that violation does not require reversal because defendant was given a meaningful opportunity to use the material when County Court permitted reopening the proof to cross-examine the victim with this information [citation omitted]."
