OpinionThe District Court ordered a third new trial due to the prosecution's repeated failure to disclose evidence about its primary witness. "The Court emphasizes that the Government's credibility in this case has been compromised. The Court expects that the Government will fully comply with the law and the spirit of Brady concerning the informant and any other witnesses it plans to use on retrial." However, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed, finding enough evidence to support a conviction.
