In a bank robbery prosecution, an ruling refusing to order DNA testing of the clothing worn by the robber under the Innocence Protection Act (Act) is reversed where: 1) the Act does not impose a more exacting standard for a showing of the chain of custody than would be demanded in a trial itself; and 2) the relevant tests could be performed in compliance with the limits of 18 U.S.C. section 3600(a)(4).
