NACDL News: DOJ Persuades DC Circuit to Keep Federal Criminal Discovery Blue Book From Being Disclosed; NACDL to Seek Rehearing En Banc
On July 19, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit — Circuit Judge Srinivasan and Senior Circuit Judges Sentelle and Edwards — issued its decision in National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers v. U.S. Department of Justice Executive Office for United States Attorneys and U.S. Department of Justice. The decision upheld the lower court’s and the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) denial of NACDL’s Freedom of Information Act request that DOJ release to the public its Federal Criminal Discovery Blue Book, finding that the Blue Book is attorney work product that was prepared to protect DOJ from litigation and therefore it is protected from disclosure.

Book Review: Mental Disability, Violence, and Future Dangerousness - Myths Behind the Presumption of Guilt
Over 50 years ago, President John F. Kennedy signed the law closing most of this country’s facilities that warehoused people with mental disabilities. Sadly, his and others’ dream that this population would live independently, supported by community-based treatment, has not come to pass. Instead, deinstitutionalization has become transinstitutionalization — that is, people who otherwise would have been institutionalized are now in America’s jails and prisons. Estimates vary, but anywhere between 40 and 60 percent of inmates have some sort of mental illness or intellectual/developmental disability, and the number is higher for juvenile facilities. Penal institutions have become de facto mental institutions, and corrections officers are often the first to admit that this is costly and dangerous.

Book Review: Beyond Freedom's Reach - A Kidnapping in the Twilight of Slavery
Lincoln freed the slaves, right? Not exactly. The Emancipation Proclamation, effective Jan. 1, 1863, only applied to those states that took up arms against the Union. It did not apply to slaveholding states that remained loyal to the Union. And, it was an Executive Order, not an Act of Congress. Lincoln issued it while the war still raged, so he dedicated Federal troops to the enforcement of the Proclamation. The Emancipation Proclamation did apply to Louisiana. This is where the story begins.
