Barry Pollack Quoted in the Blog of the Legal Times Regarding Brady Violations in 1984 Fuller Case

"Alleged Brady Violations Reopen 27-Year-Old D.C. Homicide Case"
Blog of the Legal Times
04.23.12A brief by Barry Pollack is quoted in this article on the reopening of the case in the 1984 murder of Catherine Fuller, for which eight men were convicted. In 2010, attorneys for the defendants moved to reopen the case, saying they had reason to believe prosecutors with the U.S. attorney's office in D.C. withheld key evidence, including testimony from witnesses that put two other men on the scene as possible suspects. In a brief supporting the motion to vacate, Pollack, who is representing defendant Christopher Turner, said the government had demonstrated a pattern of violating the defendants' constitutional rights. "The Government in this case repeatedly and egregiously failed to meet its Brady obligations," he wrote, adding later that "[t]he Court should not continue this decades-long pattern of injustice."
