Can the Government be forced to file a cooperation motion?

Harlan Protass just alerted me to, and blogs here, a remarkable district court opinion United States v. Ramsey, No. 5:06-CR-226, 2007 WL 2475940 (NDNY Sept. 4, 2007).  Here is the start of his write up of an opinion I've may not get a chance to read for a little while:

In Ramsey, the court found that the government breached its cooperation agreement with Ramsey, and ordered it to comply with its obligations under that agreement.  And if that is not a sufficiently extraordinary result, the nature of the breach surely is.
