The AP is reporting that the Georgia Supreme Court has denied Troy Davis’s latest effort to obtain a new trial. Mr. Davis’s attorneys filed a new motion, following the court’s March 17 denial of their earlier extraordinary motion for a new trial, this time moving for reconsideration of that earlier ruling.
A substitute opinion was also issued, with the same 4-3 split and the dissenting opinion remaining the same. New opinion available here (PDF).
Thanks to Deirdre O’Connor at Emory Law School for the tip, and for tirelessly seeking a remedy for Mr. Davis.
