U.S. Attorney’s Office: Giglio List

The Law Center requested the following, among other things, from the Executive Office for the United States Attorneys:

“Records sufficient to identify all law enforcement officers whom the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii has determined that disclosure of information may be required concerning the general credibility of that officer in any criminal case in which that officer would be called as a witness, in accordance with Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963), or Giglio v. United States, 450 U.S. 150 (1972), based on:

a. a finding of misconduct that reflects on the truthfulness or possible bias of the officer,

b. criminal charges against the officer, or

c. judicial findings that the officer testified untruthfully, made a knowing false statement in writing, engaged in an unlawful search or seizure, illegally obtained a confession, or engaged in other misconduct.

Such information often is maintained by authorities in a Brady or Giglio list.”
