How do we establish a level playing field in a criminal case and vindicate the rights mandated by the Supreme Court? The talk will alert defense counsel to ways to involve the court in monitoring compliance with its rule under Brady v Maryland 373U.S. 83(1963) and the Rules of the Court. For some time, as long as a half century ago in May 1963, courts promised that the government and defense would, as far as possible, engage on a level playing field. We will be discussing this along with the promises made as to equality between counsel in terms of information and adherence to Brady and its progeny.
