Join Us for Foster v. Chatman - A Case Study for Justice

posted Jul 6, 2016, 2:50 PM by GFADP staff

Many of you know that on May 23, the United States Supreme Court, in a 7-1 decision written by Chief Justice Roberts, held that Georgia prosecutors discriminated in striking all of the Black prospective jurors to get an all-white jury in Timothy Foster's 1987 capital trial. Mr. Foster has been represented by the Southern Center for Human Rights for many years and this is a tremendous victory. In fact, the Southern Center's impact in Foster v. Chatman continues to make waves across the South as the U.S. Supreme Court just last month remanded death penalty cases in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi for further consideration of issues involving race discrimination in jury selection.

We thought you would like to know about an upcoming event, Foster v. Chatman - A Case Study for Justice, hosted by the Georgia Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society featuring SCHR’s Foster team. This event is free and open to the public. For more details and to RSVP, click here.
