In the wake of a public reprimand by the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the eastern district federal prosecutors office implemented new policies and procedures. The office was scolded by the court for discovery abuse including a pattern of withholding evidence from defendants. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with News and Observer investigative reporter Joe Neff about the decision and changes in the department.
