High profile case dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct

Earlier this month I heard that the court dismissed the case against rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and a militia commander from Montana (arising out of  an armed standoff against federal agents in Nevada).  However, I did not noticed until recently that in dismissing the case, the Chief U.S. District Judge chastised the federal government for what she characterized as a “reckless disregard to fulfill its constitutional duties.”

The ruling was prompted by the discovery of more 3,000 pages of evidence federal prosecutors failed to turn over to defense attorneys. You can read more about the case here and here.
