Bill re Criminal Discovery Materials

[LEGISLATION] What happens to material a criminal defense attorney obtains during discovery? Under current rules, redacted material may be given to the defendant. HR 2613, introduced Jan. 11, would forbid that.

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on 2613 (and 4 other bills) yesterday. If you're into this, go to TVW to listen to streaming audio or download the hearing to iTunes. (I see plenty of people around campus and on the bus with iPods. It never occurred to me that they were listening to the Washington House Judiciary Committee, but you never know, do you?)
