Stroock Files Amicus Brief in U.S. Supreme Court on Behalf of Law and Political Science Scholars, Regarding the Constitutionality of the Death Penalty Per Se

Bruce Schneider, a partner in Stroock's Litigation Practice Group, and Stephanie Weathers-Lowin, an associate in Stroock's Litigation Practice Group, filed an amicus brief on behalf of 20 law and political science professors urging the Supreme Court of the United States to grant certiorari to review the constitutionality of capital punishment per se (under the Eighth Amendment).  The brief focuses on political science research, which shows that since the mid-1990s death sentences and executions are handed down in a small number of counties in relatively few states.
