(Studio) In 1951, Judge Irving Kaufman sentenced Julius and Ethel Rosenberg to death for giving atomic bomb secrets to USSR . They were executed in 1953. Their sons, Michael and Robert Meeropol say FBI documents show Kaufman guilty of judicial misconduct in trial. Kaufman, now chief judge of United States Court of Appeals in New York, declined comment. Chairperson of American Bar Association committee formed to defense Kaufman, calls allegations "multiple hearsay." Sons say impartial group should testify.
