On June 9, the Supreme Court issued its decision on Williams v. Pennsylvania, a case which confronted whether or not a state supreme court justice had violated the Due Process Clause when he refused to recuse himself from a capital punishment case. The justice made the initial decision to seek the death penalty and had also defended the decision on appeal while in his office as prosecutor before his appointment to the bench. The Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, asserting that the refusal to recuse was a violation of the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment. Here to discuss the decision and its impact is John J. Park, Of Counsel, Strickland Brockington Lewis LLP.

  • John J. Park, Jr., Of Counsel, Strickland Brockington Lewis LLP
