OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the special prosecutor's misconduct did not warrant a new trial. "To the extent that the prosecutor improperly read a redacted portion of [witness] Levinson's medical records aloud, defendant's objection was sustained and County Court immediately directed the jury to disregard it. Accordingly, we conclude that the prosecutor's conduct 'was not pervasive or flagrant so as to impede defendant's right to a fair trial' [citations omitted]."
