OpinionProsecutors violated the 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination of former Blackwater employees by using their compelled testimony from an administrative review of a shooting incident. This was a "reckless violation of the defendants' constitutional rights." However, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the lower court opinion "to determine, as to each defendant, what evidence —if any—the government presented against him that was tainted as to him, and, in the case of any such presentation, whether in light of the entire record the government had shown it to have been harmless beyond a reasonable doubt."
