Judge allows ‘vindictive prosecution’ defense in Dan Choi trial

• Rawstory

After three days of testimony Wednesday, a magistrate judge stopped the U.S. government's trial of former Lt. Dan Choi to allow defense lawyers to argue that the gay activist had been targeted for "vindictive prosecution."

U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola told prosecutors that defense lawyers had presented enough evidence for prima facie "vindictive prosecution," according to Metro Weekly.

The government will now have to turn over documents and evidence that could show Choi was singled out for federal prosecution instead of a district court trial.
