Trial Year1998
BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals found the prosecution to have committed a Brady violation when it provided redacted copies of a witness's previous statements. The Court was "greatly troubled by the government's conduct" after it "intentionally suppressed" favorable evidence, stating, "We take the occasion to remind the United States Attorney's office of its special obligation. Late disclosures of Brady material, particularly during trial, are an anathema to the principles underlying our criminal justice system. These concerns are outside our legal review of this case, however, and we trust that these matters will be reviewed appropriately by the Department of Justice in its usual review of such situations.
