That's a judgment call for the prosecutor to make. A witness's credibility is always a factual issue to be decided at trial. The court has no authority to dismiss a case on that basis if the prosecutor wants to proceed.

Besides, even if one witness has credibility problems, there may be plenty of evidence from other sources.
