“California state bar to investigate 130 prosecutors following misconduct study by Innocence Project and Santa Clara law school”

John Steele has this post at Legal Ethics Forum. In part:

I expect we’ll hear a lot more news about this, that the prosecutors will fight back, that the prosecutors will feel that old matters that were argued years ago shouldn’t be the basis of discipline charges, and so on.   But this move by the bar seems quite deliberate and planned out, and I expect they’ve thought through a lot of the issues.  We’ll see.  I’d also expect that at some point more prosecutor offices will adopt “open file” policies simply out of self-protection.
