NACDL News: Attorney General Sessions Moves Against the Independence and Integrity of Forensic Scien

The Washington Post reported on April 10 that Attorney General Jeff Sessions “would not renew the National Commission on Forensic Science, a roughly 30-member advisory panel of scientists, judges, crime lab leaders, prosecutors, and defense lawyers chartered by the Obama administration in 2013.” Attorney General Sessions also “suspended an expanded review of FBI testimony across several techniques that have come under question, saying a new strategy will be set by an in-house team of law enforcement advisors.”
