U.S. District Judge Margo Brodie on Monday ordered the release of a Pryor Cashman associate accused of helping damage a New York City Police Department vehicle with a Molotov cocktail during protests in Brooklyn early Saturday, over the objection of prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York.

Brodie upheld U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven Gold’s ruling that Colinford Mattis, on furlough from Pryor Cashman since April because of the coronavirus pandemic, could be released to confinement in his Brooklyn home on a $250,000 bond. She denied prosecutors’ request for a one-day stay to allow them to appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, but spokesman John Marzulli of the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed they intend to appeal regardless.
