Murky Massacre

The U.S. Supreme Court and Foul Play at Harry Connick Sr.'s Office



According to the U.S. Supreme Court, the prosecutors who worked for former Orleans Parish District Attorney Harry Connick Sr. didn't show a pattern of skirting obligations that would guarantee a fair trial. But, on at least two occasions, they behaved unconstitutionally, the Court has now ruled.


Thomspon on Connick v. Thompson


Last weekend, we took a look at why the U.S. Supreme Court denied New Orleanian John Thompson $14 million in damages for a wrongful murder conviction that left him on death row for years. But in the Supreme Court's opinions, there was one voice notably missing: John Thompson. Today, the man who was saved from execution by a last minute discovery tells his side of the story in an op-ed piece in the New York Times. The focus? We'll give you a hint: there's no mention of those $14 million.
