Government Wins Concession from Moussaoui Judge on Evidence

March 18, 2006 - Posted at 9:13 p.m. CST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) _ Zacarias Moussaoui's lawyers want the

federal judge in the death penalty

trial to further investigate a government lawyer suspected of

misconduct.

Prosecutors agreed to the step as long as the lawyer agrees to

testify.

U-S District Judge Leonie Brinkema hasn't responded to the

request. Lawyers want her on Monday to

question Transportation Security Administration lawyer Carla

Martin.

It's not known if Martin would take the stand. She's accused of

breaking the judge's order about coaching witnesses on aviation

security.

Her actions had prompted the judge this week to bar all aviation

security evidence. Yesterday, she agreed to let prosecutors call

alternate witnesses.

The defense says introducing new witnesses mid-trial will leave

them unprepared.
