    Zimmerman prosecution staffer files whistleblower suit over testimony on unreleased evidence

    WesleyWhite, lawyer for Ben Kruidbos, said the lawsuit against Angela Corey, which was filed on Thursday, cited a statute that makes it illegal to fire someone for their testimony when it is given under subpoena. Kruidbos was subpoenaed by the Zimmerman defense team.

    “I cannot find a single other case of that statute being litigated,” said White.

    “Normally people wouldn’t do something like that, fire somebody as a result of testifying pursuant to subpoena,” Said White, a former prosecutor who worked with Corey.

    The action is expected to add to pressure already on Corey, who has been criticized by legal experts for unsuccessfully prosecuting Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted on July 13 of murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of the unarmed teen.

    I did suggest the strong possibility that the prosectors were idiots.  You know, like with OJ.  Law and Order is fiction.  They even tell you before every show.

    In response to Beach-Spider's comment:

     

    [Excerpt from Wiki ...]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Corey#Politics

     

     

     

    Politics:

    Corey is an active member of the Republican Party of Duval County and the Republican Women’s Club of Duval Federated.[42] She served on the Transition Teams for both Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi.[43] Bondi endorsed Corey for State Attorney and said Corey's leadership and friendship led her to where she is today.[44] Bondi subsequently worked with Governor Scott to appoint Corey as Special Prosecutor on the Trayvon Martin case.[45]

    Controversies:

    In 2006, while serving as an Assistant State Attorney, Corey was fired by State Attorney Harry Shorstein, who cited "long-term issues" in her supervisory performance.[46] Corey alleges the dismissal was due to her decision to campaign against Shorstein's preferred successor in the election for State Attorney. Following her eventual electoral victory to replace the retiring Shorstein, Corey dismissed more than 20-percent of the employees in the Attorney's Office, a move Shorstein described as "a bloodbath." The feud between Corey and Shorstein continued to capture headlines during Corey's first year in office after the Florida Times-Union, citing inter-office emails, reported Corey's chief assistant had instructed employees to avoid conversations with Shorstein because they might appear disloyal to Corey.[47]

    In 2012, after Corey directed prosecutors to seek to try 12 year-old Cristian Fernandez - an abused child accused of killing his 2 year-old brother - as an adult, a petition on change.org calling on Corey to reconsider received 185,000 signatures.

    -> During the trial of George Zimmerman, Alan Dershowitz accused Corey of calling Harvard Law School and engaging in a "40-minute rant" in which she "threatened to sue Harvard." The purported rant followed a criticism by Dershowitz - who held a teaching position at Harvard - of Corey, who he accused of filing a misleading affidavit in the Zimmerman case. Following the trial Professor Dershowitz said she should be disbarred for multiple violations including filing a false or misleading affidavit.[48][49] <-

    In early 2013 Corey came under scrutiny after a report emerged she had directed $108,439 to be allocated for an upgrade of her pension. Corey explained the move as a necessity since her predecessor, Harry Shorstein, chose not to enhance pension benefits for the State Attorney.

    Ultimately the discretion to use evidence, or not use it, falls to the prosecutor trying the case, not an IT technician, and based on that he should have been fired as it raises questions as to whether he had engaged in certain activities prior to the Zimmerman trial, and certain whether he might do it again in the future.  Violating these types of privacy laws can lead to lawsuits against the state and perhaps more importantly call the integrity of the state prosecutors into question.

    This matter is about an 'incomplete disclosure of cell phone records' and not about who decides to use the cell phone records or not.

     

    NBC decided it was them.
