Third Circuit affirms federal death sentence

United States v. Savage — capital — affirmance — Smith

In a 201-page opinion, the Third Circuit today affirmed the conviction and death sentences of Kaboni Savage.

Alas, I think it best if I don’t blog about the opinion because I represent one of Mr. Savage’s co-defendants whose appeal remains pending before the court. I’ll endeavor to post a guest blogger’s summary in the near future. Stay tuned.

Also today, the Court issued a slightly amended opinion in an immigration appeal it originally decided in May, Francisco-Lopez v. A.G. Links to the new opinion and an order helpfully explaining what changed here.
