Capital habeas reform in Patriot Act
With thanks to Howard for the link, you can now access here an effective and interesting article in the Daily Journal of California by Lawrence Hurley entitled "Patriot Act Shortens Death Appeals." As the article explains, the just renewed Patriot Act includes a "little-noticed provision aimed at expediting capital habeas corpus petitions in federal court, which could shave several years, possibly more than five, off the time it takes death row inmates to exhaust their appeals."
