    This is a very "pertinent" read. I do have one question. Do prosecutors have the right to hand over "sensitive" information about a former cooperating witness to the defendants lawyers WITH OUT permission from a judge, USM, or the FBI? Keep in mind this cooperating witness has been a model citizen since in WITSEC for 16yrs.Do I have a case against the USPO of the Eastern Dist.?
