Some notable capital headlines nationwide

As is often the case, newspapers from many states have notable death penalty stories:

  • From Georgia here, "Death penalty study narrowly clears committee"

  • From Oklahoma here, "Legislation would allow death penalty for repeat sex offenders"

  • From Wisconsin here, "Senate passes resolution asking voters to consider death penalty"

And over at FindLaw, Sherry Colb has this commentary about the Supreme Court's Guzek ruling (background here) entitled "The Death Knell of Residual Doubt: The Supreme Court Underestimates the Relevance of Innocence."
