Government Files for Reconsideration of Moussaoui Ruling
Update: 3/16: Carla Martin has been placed on Adminstrative Leave by the TSA.
Update: The Washington Post examines whether the Government can salvage its case against Moussaoui and on its latest attempt to minimize the role of Carla J. Martin. Prosecutors also are also stepping up their attacks on her, as can be seen from today's Motion for Reconsideration:
"In this sea of Government attorneys and agents who have assiduously played by the rules, Ms. Martin stands as the lone miscreant," prosecutors wrote yesterday in court papers. "Her aberrant and apparently criminal behavior should not be the basis for undoing the good work of so many."
They acknowledged that altering the judge's ruling is their only hope of salvaging the death-penalty case.....Brinkema's sanctions make it "impossible for us to present our theory of the case to the jury," the prosecutors said, adding that the barred testimony "is one of the two essential and interconnected components of our case."
