Editorial on the death penalty case tried by a judge who was having an affair with the prosecutor

Back in September I commented on the news that the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals — the state’s supreme court on criminal matters — ruled that a man facing the death penalty would not get a new trial despite the fact that the prosecutor and the judge were involved in a romantic affair during the trial. See here.

A few days ago, the National Law Journal and published a short editorial on the case here.
