"Shaken Baby Syndrome": Recent law review articles and pending books show the tide may be turning. Thanks to Sue Luttner. "On SBS" blog.

STORY: "Well said. Law reviews address SBS," published on the SBS Blog on July 2, 2012.

The tide is turning."

The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
