Danziger 7 Prosecutors Ordered to Produce Documents

Attorneys for New Orleans police officers facing murder and attempted murder charges in fatal shootings on a bridge in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina told a judge Thursday they need to see more documents from the grand jury that indicted the officers.

The judge in the case, Raymond Bigelow, ruled Thursday that prosecutors will have to turn over the documents to him, or make them available for review by all attorneys in the case. Bigelow gave the prosecutors until Tuesday to decide.
