While many criminal justice professionals have heard about the Supreme Court cases of Brady and Giglio and the need for the government to disclose potential exculpatory to attorneys for criminal defendants, many are just learning of an evolving area of the law relating to employee discipline. Over the nation there is growing litigation that some acts of discipline may trigger Brady disclosure obligation.
