    "The Brooklyn DA also argues that expert testimony on cross-racial identification would be an appropriate vehicle for addressing the issue." Does this mean the DA won‘t seek to preclude the cross-racial identification expert? Because historically it costs a lot of money to retain such expert to then have him/her precluded at the DA‘s request.
