Criminal Law - Evidence Withheld
Justice Department lawyers in Washington ran afoul of their discovery obligations by holding on to witness information that undercuts the government’s case, a federal judge says. U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler found “not the slightest doubt” that the government violated its obligation to turn over exculpatory information, committing a Brady violation. Federal prosecutors are deciding whether to ask the judge to reconsider her conclusion that the government wrongly held on to certain information in a criminal case against longtime criminal defense lawyer, Charles Daum.
