    Another Chance for the Justices to Say No to Prosecutorial Misconduct - Andrew Cohen - The Atlantic

    US Supreme Court
    13-555 WOLFE, JUSTIN M. V. CLARKE, DIR., VA DOC


    "Wolfe v. Clarke is about a murder conviction and death sentence that unraveled under the force of the truth. It is a case about state prosecutors getting caught hiding exculpatory evidence, and getting scolded for it by the federal courts, and then violating the federal court order sanctioning them by threatening a witness and spoiling the retrial of a man they helped to wrongly convict. It is a case where prosecutors did all of this, right up to the brief they filed with the justices, without an evident shred of public contrition for their improper conduct."
