In the decisions of the United States Surpeme Court, commonly known as Brady and Giglio, it was decreed the government has an affirmative obligation to disclose exculpatory information to the defense — including impeachment material.
In this presentation, we explore the impact of employment discipline on those disclosure obligations. By the time the seminar is done you will have a better understanding of:
- Brady and Giglio obligations and case law
- How employment discipline is evolving and impacting Brady obligations
- What a "Brady List" is and its implications
- Options to manage Brady issues
- The potential for cooperation and conflict between law enforcement and prosecutors
- Future trends and emerging issues on Brady obligations
