Information, links, briefs and more on Connick v. Thompson
Last March I reported that the US Supreme Court has agreed to review Connick v. Thompson, a case in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit affirmed a $14 million award for a wrongful conviction in a murder case. Here is the link to the Supreme Court WIKI page on the case which has links to pretty much anything you need to research the case: the briefs, the opinion of the lower courts, the cert petition, background information and more. This page gets updated with more links as the case progresses so save the cite and check it frequently if you are interested in this case.
