Judges Tosses Ex-Terrorist Suspect’s Suit Against Detroit FBI Agent

DETROIT –An FBI agent is off the hook.

U.S. District Judge Marianne Battani of Detroit on Monday tossed out a lawsuit against FBI agent Michael Thomas, the Associated Press reported. The suit was filed Karim Koubriti, whose terrorism conviction  in Detroit was thrown out after it was ruled that the prosecution withheld crucial evidence from the defense.

The judge on Monday ruled that  Koubriti had failed to prove that the agent had intentionally withheld evidence, AP reported.

Koubriti was after millions of dollars in damage in a suit originally filed against Thomas and former federal prosecutor Richard Convertino. Convertino had been removed from the lawsuit based on a ruling that prosecutors are immune from lawsuits.

The high profile case generated a lot of attention, first because the arrests came shortly after 9/11.  Later, after trial, the case  was mired in controversy after allegations surfaced that the prosecution had withheld information from the defense.
