Lawsuit over Mob/FBI Frameup

The Associated Press reports that a man who died in prison after being framed by mobsters who were FBI informants has been posthumously exonerated by the Massachusetts courts. http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/05/national/05mob.html

Judge Nancy Gertner of the District of Massachusetts recently ruled that a lawsuit against the United States based on the frame up may proceed.  Opinion here:http://pacer.mad.uscourts.gov/dc/opinions/gertner/pdf/limonememosept04.pdf
