Appeal from the Supreme Court, Kings County (Garry, J.).
Ordered that the judgment is affirmed.
Upon review of the Grand Jury synopsis sheet and Early Case Assessment Bureau data sheet we find that the trial court did not err in denying the defendant's request that the People turn these documents over to him. Neither contained an abbreviated summary of an interview with any of the People's witnesses and, as such, did not constitute discoverable Rosario material (see, People v. Rosario, 9 N.Y.2d 286, cert denied 368 U.S. 866; People v Williams, 128 A.D.2d 912, lv denied 69 N.Y.2d 1011; People v Davis, 87 A.D.2d 597).
In addition, we find that the trial court's denial of the defendant's application to unseal a criminal record purportedly belonging to the complainant was not an improvident exercise of discretion since the trial court was not convinced that the person depicted in the arrest photograph accompanying the record was the complainant (see, Matter of District Attorney of Suffolk County, 58 N.Y.2d 436, 444; Matter of Hynes v. Karassik, 47 N.Y.2d 659, 664, rearg denied 48 N.Y.2d 656). In any event, the defendant's right to confrontation was not compromised by this ruling since the trial court permitted defense counsel to ask the complainant about the underlying facts contained in the record in order to impeach his credibility (see, People v. Sorge, 301 N.Y. 198, 200; Richardson, Evidence § 498 [Prince 10th ed]). Thompson, J.P., Lawrence, Rubin and Eiber, JJ., concur.
