Robinson v. Mills, 09-5243

District court's grant of conditional habeas relief to a defendant convicted of first degree murder is affirmed as withholding impeachment evidence regarding a witness's status as a confidential informer was material under Brady because there was a reasonable probability that disclosure of the evidence would have resulted in a different outcome for the proceeding.
