BodySupreme court
OpinionThe New York Court of Appeals affirmed the lower court's holding that a Brady violation occurring when the prosecutor failed to disclose several e-mails relating to bribing a witness charge did not require reversal of the remaining counts. "The [lower] Court found that the prosecution 'failed to fulfill basic disclosure obligations that are essential to a fair trial,' but also found that failure did not affect the remaining counts of defendant's conviction [citation omitted]. . . .[U]nder the circumstances of this case, reversal was not required on the remaining counts as there is no reasonable possibility that the evidence supporting the alleged tainted count had a spillover effect on the other convictions."
