In this inmate's suit against a district attorney, the appellant challenges the trial court's denial of his motion for summary judgment and the granting of absolute immunity to the district attorney. Absolute immunity does not apply to acts that are not intimately associated with the judicial phase of the criminal process. A Brady violation (as here alleged) is intimately associated with the judicial phase of the criminal process. The trial court's order is affirmed. Texarkana Court of Appeals, No. 06-12-00042-CV, 10-15-2012.
