46. The evidence appears to have been insufficient to prove conspiracy
So the judge threw it out.

Judges are often asked to decide whether remaining evidence against a defendant is sufficient after some evidence has been excluded. In this case, it was apparently NOT sufficient.

I'd suspect, given the nature of the surveillance programs unleashed on war protesters, that this case had essentially nothing after the illegally collected evidence was excluded. Just goes to show that the government should not engage in illegal evidence collection.
