BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe Eastern District Court of New York held that the prosecutor's failure to disclose the alleged victim's criminal record and the prosecutor's eliciting of the victim's false testimony that he had no criminal record violated Brady, and the court granted the defendant's federal habeas petition. "[T]his court holds that there has been a violation of due process based upon Brady v. Maryland for failure to turn over material impeachment evidence; that holding is sufficient in itself to require relief. In addition, on the facts of this case, there has also been a violation of due process based upon the admission of perjured testimony which the prosecutor should have known was false."
