The Virginia State Bar’s Standing Committee on Legal Ethics has voted not to send proposed Legal Ethics Opinion 1888
to Council. After receiving many comments in support of and in opposition to the proposed LEO, the committee will consider other means of addressing the issues. The proposed LEO concerns a prosecutor’s duty to disclose evidence that tends to negate the guilt of the accused.
