Moussaoui Death Penalty Derailed

U.S.District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema said "In all my years on the bench, I've never seen a more egregious violation of the rule about witnesses". Moussaoui's defense moved for a mistrial after learning that a government attorney for the TSA gave upcoming witnesses transcripts of opening statements and testimony in the sentencing trial.

At the conclusion of today's proceedings Moussaoui smiled and raised his cup of water in the direction of the attorneys as if to toast. As he left the courtroom he exclaimed "the show must go on".
