In Re Burton (Cal. Supreme Ct. - Dec. 18, 2006)

It's been almost 24 years since the murder. And Andre Burton has just now finished exhausting his state remedies. And doesn't seem to hasn't even started the federal habeas process.

Two dozen years of litigation, with another dozen or so to go. Ah, death penalty jurisprudence. The high point of our judicial system.
