One Year and Counting

Dear Friend of Justice,

One year ago today, the Massachusetts Appeals Court held a hearing on DA David Capeless’s motion to deny a new trial to Bernard Baran.

You may wish to review my report on that hearing. I also posted this follow-up comment.

It is unusual for the Appeals Court to take such a long time to issue a decision. There is, however, a huge volume of material to review. One hopes that it is all being thoughtfully read.

When will the Commonwealth’s persecution of this fine young man and his family ever stop?
