Clinic Helps Death-Row Inmate Win Review Before the Supreme Court
On June 28, 2004, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari in Thomas Miller-El v. Dretke, a case in which the Death Penalty Clinic and Sidley Austin Brown & Wood of Washington, D.C., had filed an amicus curiae brief in support of the petition for review. The case will be considered during the Court's Fall 2004 term. This is the third amicus brief the clinic has filed in this matter on behalf of former judges and prosecutors. Amici include former federal appellate court judges, a former deputy U.S. attorney general, a former F.B.I. director, former state attorneys general, former assistant U.S. attorneys, and the former district attorney of Boston.
