Atkins MR/ID Court Decision: Cathey v TX (2013)

A very interesting and much awaited decision came down a few weeks ago...Cathey v TX (2013). The interest in the case had to do, in part, with some of the critical Atkins issues it addressed. Notable was the courts recognition that the Flynn Effect (norm obsolescence) as a scientific reliable and valid fact and that an adjustment of 0.3 years per year is a appropriate.

Also notable was the line-up of high profile experts who testified or had their work cited on behalf of Cathey. They included James Flynn, Alan Kaufman, Jack Fletcher, Greg Olley and others
No other comments are offered. It is a decison worth reading.
