OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the government's violation of the defendant's Brady rights did not require reversal: "We agree with defendant that the People committed a Brady violation by failing to disclose a plea agreement with the complainant, who as previously noted herein was the codefendant with respect to a drug charge against defendant. Pursuant to that plea agreement, the complainant promised 'continued cooperation with [the District Attorney's Office] in the prosecution of [defendant].' The Brady violation does not require reversal, however, because defendant received the Brady material as part of the Rosario material provided to him and was given a meaningful opportunity to use the exculpatory evidence to cross-examine the complainant [citations omitted]."
