A federal judge Thursday ordered the government to pay more than $101 million (€73.6 million) in the case of four men who spent decades in prison for a 1965 murder they did not commit after the FBI withheld evidence of their innocence.SHOCKING!!!!
The judge called the government's defense that the FBI had no duty to get involved because it was a state case "absurd."
Peter Limone, Joseph Salvati and the families of the two other men who died in prison had sued the federal government for malicious prosecution.
They argued Boston FBI agents knew mob hitman Joseph "The Animal" Barboza lied when he named them as killers in the 1965 death of Edward Deegan. They said Barboza was protecting a fellow FBI informant, Vincent "Jimmy" Flemmi, who was involved.
The men's lawyers said the four were treated as "acceptable collateral damage" in the FBI's priority at the time — taking down the Mafia through the use of criminal informants.
"It took 30 years to uncover this injustice, and the government's position is, in a word, absurd," U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner said Thursday.
"No lost liberty is dispensable," she told the packed courtroom. "We have fought wars over this principle. We are still fighting these wars."
