Van de Kamp v. Goldstein
On January 26, 2009 the Supreme Court issued a ruling in favor of the prosecutors in Van de Kamp v. Goldstein, a case that addressed whether prosecutors have absolute immunity from liability for failing to provide criminal defendants with constitutionally-required exculpatory information. Constitutional Accountability Center (CAC) filed an amicus brief in this case in support of the respondent, Thomas Lee Goldstein, who spent 24 years in prison after he was wrongfully convicted of murder based on the false testimony of a self-interested jailhouse informant.
