Is it significant to a trial if the prosecution fails to disclose and file an exhibit and witness list as required by an order?

Asked about 2 years ago - Minneapolis, MN

Let's say a pretrial court order required opposing counsel disclose by a certain date but the State failed to do so. Are these good grounds to file a motion to dismiss the case?

    Answered . It won't likely be grounds for dismissal, but you can certainly ask for sanctions. For example, you could ask that the evidence not be allowed in court.
