Prosecutors Will Not Be Disciplined by Their Offices For Misconduct

I strongly urge that you read this excellent (and depressing) article by Joel Rudin detailing the utter failure of  three NYC District Attorney’s offices to reprimand assistant DA’s found by courts to have engaged in misconduct: J. Rudin, The Supreme Court Assumes Errant Prosecutors Will Be Disciplined by Their Offices or the Bar: Three Case Studies That Prove That Assumption Wrong (8 Fordham L R 537 [2011]). The article shows how these District Attorney offices have created more incentives for trial prosecutors to seek to win that they do to comply with their Brady obligations.
