Another case of prosecutorial misconduct
Here is yet another report of prosecutorial misconduct. Law.com reported a few days ago that a Santa Clara County, Calif., Superior Court judge cited "egregious" and "grossly shocking" prosecutorial conduct in dismissing a child sexual assault case last week. The judge's order is available here. The story in Law.com is available here. in the order, the judge states that the prosecutor's "numerous acts of misconduct, culminating in his false testimony in this proceeding, strikes at the foundation of our legal system and is so grossly shocking and outrageous that it offends the universal sense of justice to allow prosecution in this matter to proceed."
