OpinionThe Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the trial court should not have permitted negative identification testimony, and such error was harmless. "It was . . . error to permit the People to elicit the challenged negative identification testimony. In addition, the prosecutor improperly suggested during summation that two other witnesses, who did identify the defendant in a lineup and at trial, participated in the showup identification. Nonetheless, these errors were harmless."
