Annotation Reversal of verdict on the basis of failure to disclose certain information to the defendant is mandated only where the information might have affected the outcome of the trial. However, failure of prosecution to give notice to defendant of grants of immunity to two witnesses was not reversible error in that the ex parte order was available to the defense counsel in court records and there was nothing to indicate that the defense counsel's lack of knowledge regarding the grants of immunity might have in any way prejudiced the defendant so as to have affected the outcome of the trial. People v. Hickam, 684 P.2d 228 (Colo. 1984).
