OpinionIndictment was thrown out due to the government's withholding of information from the defense. Their key witness admitted he knowingly lied about bank account records so that the defense could not subpoena them. "If justice is to prevail, the U.S. attorney and his assistants must themselves, in enforcing the law, obey the law. This was not done in this case, and the failure is without excuse." The Judge ordered the government "to show cause why a formal investigation before the Office of Professional Responsibility of the Department of Justice should not be commenced."
