This presentation will cover the meaning, usage and strategies for using the new NYS Brady Order. It is intended as a three-hour lecture/interactive problem-solving session conducted for no more than a twenty-person group on first-come-first-serve application basis in a conference room setting. All defense attorneys regardless of experience level are welcome. We will address the substance of the order itself, its strengths and shortcomings, potential problems with district attorneys and judges, the interrelationship between the order and C.P.L. 240.20, forensic science Brady issues and methods for memorializing Brady requests at every juncture in a case. Attorneys are encouraged to bring their own case files where there is current Brady problem so as to facilitate group discussion.
