what does "good-faith" means in this context?

Hi, 

what's the meaning of "good-faith prosecution" if a lawyer in a show says "it won't be a good-faith prosecution, to continue with this case, if we don't believe the witness"?

I don't understand how good faith fits here.

    In this context, it would be truthful, reliable, or appropriate.

    Doing it in good faith, in the belief that it is the right thing to do.  Bad faith would mean false reasons (based on a lie).  The faith is the belief, a good faith is believing that the argument is true.  If you doubt the truth of the argument, then you cannot have faith in it.  It cannot be a good faith.

    It would be unjust and probably unethical.

    Without reliable witness, prosecution can't be neutral, but will be one-sided, biased. I presume , therefore, the lawyer says this.The faith should always prevail during the time of judgement and the judgment coming out can be termed as good-faith judgement/prosecution.
