Commonwealth v. Bright

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 22, 2020

The defendant appealed his conviction of possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance and argued the trial court erred when it denied his motion to disclose the identity of a confidential informant (“CI”), and that the verdict was against the weight of the evidence. The Superior Court held that the defendant failed to make the requisite showing that the request for disclosure of the identity of the CI was reasonable and that the information sought to be obtained through disclosure was material. Moreover, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in concluding that the verdict was not objectively shocking.
