Today at the U.S. Supreme Court


The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments this morning in Van de Kamp v. Goldstein, a California case centering on whether chief prosecutors can be held accountable for administrative or systemic failures leading to wrongful convictions.

And on Monday, the justices will hear Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, another case critical to the rights of criminal defendants and the wrongfully convicted.

The Innocence Network filed friend-of-the-court briefs in both cases.
