OpinionThe D.C. District Court ordered a new trial for the prosecution's failure to disclose exculpatory evidence, namely evidence that another suspect had lied to investigators, as the defense had contended. "The government was presented with several opportunities to disclose information favorable to the defense, but it instead chose to withhold that valuable information, thereby unfairly prejudicing [the defendant] in the presentation of his defense."
