OpinionProsecutors failed to turn over exculpatory evidence for a man challenging his detention in Guantanamo Bay. The District Court Judge threatened to imprison senior officials: "I've spent a heck of a lot of time putting this case in a posture, fighting with government attorneys, dealing with the failures of the government to produce exculpatory evidence, and now we have more failures to produce exculpatory evidence and someone's going to pay a price for that, for not having disclosed that document that everyone knows is exculpatory, and the sanction is going to be high."
