Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal issued a ruling that scrutinized prosecutors’ trial skills, and said the behavior required a new trial.

“We write to address two of the numerous issues raised by the defendant, which we find to be reversible error and to warrant a new trial,” Judge Cory J. Ciklin wrote in the opinion with Judges Melanie G. May And Jeffrey T. Kuntz concurring.  “Because of the trial court’s erroneous admission of previously undisclosed evidence, and the allowance of an improper statement in closing arguments, we reverse and remand.”
