So what did the Court hold?
The trial court did not err as a matter of law in denying defendant's for-cause challenge to prospective juror R.P. (see People v Arnold, 96 NY2d 358,362-363 ; People v Johnson, 94 NY2d 600, 610-614  [available [here]).
People v Rivera, 200 NY Slip Op 06583 [here].
Just so it is clear, that was the Court's entire discussion of this issue. Hope that clears things up. (But didn't the Court hold in Arnold that similar language was too equivocal?)
