Story on the California report on prosecutorial misconduct
Back in October, I reported on a recent study concluded that California courts discipline fewer than 1% of prosecutors they find committed misconduct. (See here.) About two weeks after that, the California state bar, led by recently-appointed Chief Trial Counsel Jim Towery, announed it was going to investigate 130 prosecutors who were identified in that study. (See here.) The story is now addressed in a short article in the current issue of the ABA Journal, available here.
