Dead Man Walking without Due Process? A Discussion of the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996


This discussion took place at the August 1996 annual meeting of the American Bar Association and was organized and moderated by Ronald J. Tabak, Special Counsel with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and Chair of the Death Penalty Committee of the A.B.A. Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities. Mr. Tabak and the participants have updated their comments to reflect recent developments in the law, including the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Lindh v. Murphy, 1997 U.S. Lexis 3998 (June 23, 1997).
