People v. Rundle (Cal. Supreme Court - April 3, 2008)

It took the jury less than a day to convict David Rundle, and less than a day to sentence him to death.

It takes the California Supreme Court 159 pages -- and over 18 years -- to unanimously affirm. And we're not talking about intermediate reversals or the like; nope, this is the very first opinion.

An interesting contrast.
