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 Hawai`i 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.”
