CASE ENTRY

Scott v. United States

Informant testifies against drug suspect, who’s convicted in 2004. He appeals unsuccessfully. Yikes! In 2011, prosecutors disclose information (which they’d purportedly just learned) that could have been used to cast doubt on the informant’s testimony. Eleventh Circuit: We should reconvene en banc and overturn the precedent that prevents the suspect from pursuing a second appeal.
