Defense lawyers for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev argued in court filings Thursday that federal prosecutors are unfairly seeking a trial advantage by refusing to immediately turn over evidence in the case, including interviews investigators conducted with Tsarnaev’s parents, siblings, and other family members.
