Video on Connick v Thompson

As you probably remember, back in 2010, the Supreme Court decided Connick v. Thompson, which has been described as "one of the most bitterly divided opinions of the Court in a criminal case in recent years," absolving the New Orleans District Attorney's office (under DA Harry Connick, Sr.) of complaints that it had failed to train prosecutors about their duty to disclose exculpatory evidence.  (If you type "Connick" on the "search this blog" box on the right side panel (under my name), you will find a long list of entries with a lot of information about that case.)  Adding to that wealth of information and materials, here is a very short but informative video on the case.
