While this case has hit the papers, it probably is worth taking a look at the District Court’s opinion, dismissing the indictment for outrageous government conduct, in United States v. Carriles, 2007 WL 1433458 (WD Tex. May 8, 2007) (Cardone, J.) . As usual, since I think it is wrong for blogs to link to pay sites, I uploaded the PACER version of the opinion here.
The opinion writes a freakin’ treatise on when indictments should be dismissed because the government manipulates a parallel proceeding.
