Ep.10 - The Execution of Carlos DeLuna -- 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.
