Mack's Criminal Law BulletinBrady disclosure consists of exculpatory or impeaching information and evidence that is material to the guilt or innocence or to the punishment of a defendant. The term comes from the U. Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland ,  in which the Supreme Court ruled that suppression by the prosecution of evidence favorable to a defendant who has requested it violates due process. Following Brady , the prosecutor must disclose evidence or information that would prove the innocence of the defendant or would enable the defense to more effectively impeach the credibility of government witnesses. Evidence that would serve to reduce the defendant's sentence must also be disclosed by the prosecution. In practice this doctrine has often proved difficult to enforce.

Publisher: University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing. Although it is difficult to be comprehensive in an introductory text, the author's attempts at introducing legal concepts through individual cases in my experience is not a good starting points. On one occasion the year cited on an important case from was cited as a case. Other references to well known criminal cases contained inaccuracies. Relevance and longevity could be improved by including more recent analysis of contemporary cases.
