More convictions reversed because of prosecutorial misconduct
Describing the conduct of Justice Department lawyers as “grotesque,” U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt ordered a new trial for officers accused of deadly shootings at the Danziger Bridge after Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent cover-up.
The 129-page order identifies “unprecedented events and acts” of misconduct by prosecutors. Jonathan Turley has a comment on the case here.
