Failure to disclose critical exculpatory evidence

Here is a Wichita Eagle article reporting that federal prosecutors have decided to dismiss charges involving allegations of genocide in Rwanda. (We previously blogged about the case here and here). Part of the rationale for dismissal included the fact that the federal government had failed to disclose critical exculpatory evidence that it had in its possession five months prior to charges being brought.

Congrats to Kurt Kerns and Melanie Morgan for their zealous work in this case!
