As a part of the Federal District Judge's inquiry into the Brady violations that reportedly caused the case against the Iran sanctions violator, Ali Sadr Hasheminejad, to be dismissed with prejudice, the Court has asked for information from the US Attorney's Office. In an order issued today, it stated that, so far as can be done, all the factual filings will be available for viewing, and not sealed. That information may finally put to rest the nagging questions about the adequacy of the alleged violations, and whether they actually rose to the level that justified a complete dismissal of all charges,not just for Sadr, but also for a co-defendant who was never in the United States, nor in custody.
Was the real reason for the dismissal major cooperation and/or the surrender of million in assets ? Perhaps after we review the US Attorney's filings, we might be in a better position to answer that question. Here is the relevant order.
