People v. Rogers (Cal. Supreme Court - July 25, 2013)

How many votes do you think serial killer Glen Rogers gets in his bid to overturn his death sentence?

If you guessed "None," give yourself a pat on the back.  If you made any other guess, reread a history book.

There is, however, a separate concurrence.  From Justice Chin.  Articulating his belief that the trial court had been too generous to Rogers.

So that's something, I guess.

Not that I am feeling especially bad for Rogers.  Who seems a truly evil sort.

Sometimes I talk about how a case doesn't seem all that different from other cases that do not result in the death penalty.  This is not one of them.
