Prosecutorial Misconduct Case

Can prosecutors be sued? A case was heard On November 5 in Supreme Court, but it is usually weeks or months before a decision comes. 

"When the false testimony and other exculpatory evidence was discovered, the two innocent men, Curtis McGhee and Terry Harrington, were released after 25 years in prison. They filed a lawsuit against the prosecutors." Click here to link to the decision.

"Former Bush administration Solicitor General Paul Clement will tell the Supreme Court that in 1977, Council Bluffs was an almost all-white community, and that politics and race played a part in the prosecutor's decisions."
