'Brooklyn DA' Stars Face Criticism Over TV Show, Misconduct Allegations


"Can the power of a major network television station, under the guise of being a news broadcast, guide voters to go a certain way? (The show) was very sympathetic to the office. It didn't shed light on the huge problems Brooklynites are facing," he said.

CBS News, which produced the show, declined to comment on the specific allegations about the show's effect on the election or Collins' case.

"As a practice, the team on 'Brooklyn DA' doesn't discuss its editorial process. The team of dedicated journalists behind 'Brooklyn DA' prefers to let each edition of the documentary series speak for itself," said Richard Huff, a spokesman for the series.

Collins' lawsuit is still pending in federal court. According to court documents, the city has asked the court to seal any testimony Hynes gives in deposition, and Rudin has filed a motion to prevent the testimony from being sealed.
