Research Paper: Part 2 – Cases Summary Instructions
Since 1963, a series of United States Supreme Court case decisions have claried that in criminal cases,
prosecutors must disclose to the defense evidence favorable to the defendant. This includes informaon
that may be used to impeach the credibility of government witnesses, including law enforcement
o#cers. These decisions mean that police o#cers who have documented histories of lying in o#cial
ma$ers are liabilies to their agencies, and these histories may render them unable to tesfy credibly.
Summarize the main issues that are involved in the following United States Supreme Court cases. You
must have pages, not including your tle page.
