Atkins MR/ID death penalty decision: Dufour v Florida (2011)

Just learned today that the Florida Supreme Court decided against Dufour, a case that has been commented on a number of times here at the ICDP blog. The ghost of the Cherry Court is unfortunately alive and well. The only encouraging aspect of the case was a dissent by one justice, who seemed to "get it" regarding the nature of adaptive behavior limitations in the context of strengths.

Oh Florida......
