Briefs Filed in Troy Davis Case in Georgia

Briefs from both parties in the Troy Davis case were filed in the U.S. District Court in Savannah, Georgia, on July 7, 2010. The federal judge considering the possible innocence of Davis, a death row inmate from Georgia who has been granted a stay of execution from the U.S. Supreme Court, requested the briefs following an evidentiary hearing on June 23 reviewing new evidence that had arisen since Davis’s original trial. A ruling is expected in the near future and further action by the U.S. Supreme Court may follow. The briefs may be found here: Defendant’s brief and Attorney General’s brief.
