BLOG RUCKUS UPDATE:
We received an email from the attorney who we were upset with ( it took a few days). He apologized for the contretemps.
He said he was taking down the automatic feed. In response to that we are deleting our last two blog posts.
It just keeps getting worse and worse for proponents of the death penalty (Motto "kill em all, guilty or innocent.") .
Judge Brennan granted a defense motion to strike the death penalty because the ASA failed to file the new notice of intent to seek death with the applicable aggravating factors within the time periods prescribed by the new statute.
Chris Decoste with RC3 with the nice win.
This decision is case specific and doesn't have the precedential value of Judge Hirsch's order, but a win is a win.
Query: is the death penalty dead?
Lots of negative comments about our actions with the blog-thief, even from long-time and careful blog readers.
Take our new poll.
