When police blew up a suspicious box that caused the evacuation of two federal buildings in downtown Miami, they may have blown up a federal criminal case. According to two lawyers, the box turned out to contain papers and evidence for a case where a verdict had just been reached. The lawyers said a federal agent had left the box on the sidewalk. Hundreds of attorneys and courthouse staffers were ushered out of the buildings by federal marshals during the bomb scare.
