US v. Salem, No. 08-2034

By FindLaw Staff on August 25, 2009 5:06 PM

In a prosecution for witness intimidation and possessing a firearm in furtherance of that offense, a denial of defendant's request for a new trial is vacated and remanded for an evidentiary hearing where: 1) under Brady, the government was required to disclose evidence materially favorable to the accused; and 2) defendant never had a sufficient opportunity to make a showing of whether certain evidence at issue was material by demonstrating reasonable probability that had the evidence been disclosed to the defense, the result of the proceeding would have been different.
