Issue: Whether, to establish a violation of Brady v.
Maryland, a defendant must show
that he could not have obtained the suppressed, exculpatory evidence through his own independent efforts
of “self-help” or “due diligence” as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit
and five other circuits have held, or whether the defendant’s failure to uncover the evidence independently is irrelevant, as the remaining six courts of
appeals have held.
