Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's decision to grant defendant's request for habeas relief and to vacate his capital murder conviction concluding that a Brady violation had occurred is affirmed as, in light of the importance of the testimony of three witnesses and the significant impeachment value of the undisclosed information, defendant's right to due process, as set forth in Brady, was violated by the Commonwealth's failure to disclose the information.
