Atkins MR/ID Death Penalty Court Decisions: Escobedo v Thaler (TX, 2012) and Harris v Thaler (TX, 2012)

Thanks to Kevin Foley (again) for sharing two recent Atkins decisions from Texas.

Escobedo v Thaler (TX, 2012) is an order from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals sending the case back to the trial court to reconsider the matter in light of the administrative proceeding against the state's expert, Dr. Denkowski.

Harris v Thaler (TX, 2012) is from the Federal Appeals Court for the Fifth Circuit. Again, he issue of the Flynn Effect is present in this case.
