Several criminal defense lawyers, a federal judge and a Justice Department policy official gathered in Washington, D.C., on Friday to examine prosecution disclosure obligations, a discussion that comes amid a widespread call for discovery reform. Justice Department officials have concluded there is no widespread misconduct, according to the DOJ lawyer on the panel -- but other panelists maintained that there is a national problem regarding disclosure obligations.
