BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe New York Criminal Court of the City of New York, New York County, held that the prosecutor's failure to disclose that the criminal matter against the complaining witness had been adjourned in contemplation of dismissal was cured by recalling a witness and allowing defendant to cross-examine witness regarding pending charges. "In this case, although there is no question that the defendant had made a specific discovery request, there is no reasonable possibility that the prosecution's failure to disclose the complainant's ACD contributed to the verdict, since the defendant was given a meaningful opportunity to use this information to cross-examine the complainant."
