Massachusetts SJC to Review Shanley Case

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Dear Friend of Justice,

This morning I learned that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has granted a direct review of the Paul Shanley case. Here is a copy of the petition.

To learn more about the Shanley case, read my previous post, which is my account of the trial, and visit this link.

It will be interesting to see whether the SJC confronts or ducks the issue of whether repressed-memory testimony can be considered reliable in Massachusetts.
