The Criminal Docket
Episode Ten of NACDL's The Criminal Docket, Hosted by Ivan J. Dominguez

This week, we explore the 1989 execution of Carlos DeLuna by the State of Texas with Columbia University Law School Professor James S. Liebman, a 2002 recipient of NACDL’s Champion of Justice Award who last week released a groundbreaking investigative report about the Carlos DeLuna case, more than five years in the making by his research team, entitled Los Tocayos Carlos: An Anatomy of a Wrongful Execution. Professor Liebman, who clerked for former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stevens and spent many years practicing at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, has focused for decades on a research agenda alternating between capital punishment and public education reform. Among his work, Liebman co-authored treatises on both Habeas Corpus and Evidence as well as a statistical study of error rates in capital cases entitled A Broken System, released in two parts in 2000 & 2002. Learn more about NACDL.
