Another Supreme Court Decision Stopping Innocent People from Getting Their Day in Court w/Alison Guernsey and Meredith Esser
An unfortunate theme of the show is the reality that the Supreme Court is more than happy to close the doors of the courthouse to those who are factually or legally innocent. Preferring to uphold and support the concept of “finality” over truth, the Supreme Court once again found a way to keep a potentially innocent man from escaping an unjust sentence. Joining Hunter to discuss this and more is Alison Guernsey, Director of the University of Iowa College of Law Federal Criminal Defense Clinic, and Meredith Esser, Director of the University of Wyoming College of Law Defender Aid Clinic. As former Federal Public Defenders themselves, both hope to draw attention to the immense disparity between people’s conception of justice and the “justice” available to those trapped in the Federal Criminal Legal System.
