Bulletin: Neal Robbins: Grits for Breakfast reports that tomorrow (March 19, 2014) the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will consider how broadly to apply the new Texas junk science writ.

POST: "Court to consider how broadly to apply new Texas junk science writ,"  published by Grits for Breakfast, on March 18, 2014.

GIST: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will hear oral arguments tomorrow morning in Ex Parte Robbins, the court's first opportunity to decide how narrowly or broadly it will interpret the state's new junk science writ enshrined in statute by the Texas Legislature last year......... This is the same new statute under which the San Antonio Four and Fran and Dan Keller were released - they're now out on bail though the CCA hasn't given final approval in those cases yet. Those junk science cases are considered more likely to be easily approved, while the Robbins case - which involves an ME who gave erroneous testimony and changed her opinion after she learned more science - is considered the first test case that will provide an indication how the CCA will interpret the new writ."

Dear Reader. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog. We are following this case.

I have added a search box for content in this blog which now encompasses several thousand posts. The search box is located  near the bottom of the screen just above the list of links. I am confident that this powerful search tool provided by "Blogger" will help our readers and myself get more out of the site.

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
