Judge Orders Probe of Prosecutors -

"In the Stevens case, the Justice Department said the prosecution should have given the defense notes from an April 15, 2008, interview in which Stevens friend Bill Allen, head of Veco Corp., a now-defunct oil-services company, made statements to prosecutors that contradicted the testimony Mr. Allen later gave at trial.

Judge Sullivan previously held three department officials in civil contempt for failing to turn over internal communications in connection with a whistle-blower complaint about the case from a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. Justice officials found the April 15 notes during a review that began in February in preparation for Mr. Stevens's appeal."
