A libertarian blogger whose blog I sometimes poke in on had a story on a Supreme Court case that negated a lawsuit brought up by a man in Louisiana who sued the prosecutor’s office (run by Harry Connick Jr.'s dad!), claiming they deliberately withheld evidence of his innocence.
Says one commenter on the case (PDF warning for this link, the official opinion):
Now, I’ve read comments on this blog before and asked about them, and in those cases the legal eagles here said that they were overreacting. What about this case?
Or, if you want to talk about generalities, how do we walk the fine line between not letting prosecutorial misconduct slide, and watching an avalanche of frivolous suits and claims from disgruntled defendants?
