Court Decision as to the conduct involving the MA Attorney General's Office

"The AGO [Attorney General's Office] offers patently baseless defenses for its withholding of exculpatory evidence. Most recently and surprisingly, in 2017, the AGO denies having had any legal obligation to turn over the mental health worksheets to district attorneys because the AGO had not prosecuted the drug lab defendants. That position is at odds with the fundamental principles of fairness. '[T]he duties of a prosecutor to administer justice fairly, and particularly concerning requested or obviously exculpatory evidence, go beyond winning convictions.' Commonwealth v. Ware, 471 Mass. at 95, quoting Commonwealth v. Tucceri, 412 Mass. 401, 408 (1992)." (See page 68 in link to the 2017 MA Superior Court Decision below.)
