Clark v. Brown (9th Cir. - March 17, 2006)

Panel draws matter. Anyone who doubts that fact should take a look at this case, which grants a habeas petition and reverses the death sentence of William Clark. The panel here is (Dorothy) Nelson, (Willie) Fletcher, and Fisher.

I'm quite confident that the outcome would have been different if the panel had been, say, O'Scannlain, Rymer, and Callahan. Quite.
