District Atty.'s Offc. v. Osborne
No. 08-6

Title:

    District Atty.'s Offc. v. Osborne

Subject:

Question:

    1. May Osborne use § 1983 as a discovery device for obtaining postconviction
    access to the state's biological evidence when he has no pending substantive claim
    for which that evidence would be material?

    2. Does Osborne have a right under the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process
    Clause to obtain postconviction access to the state's biological evidence when the
    claim he intends to assert - a freestanding claim of innocence - is not legally
    cognizable?
