Screen shot 2015-07-01 at 3.44.56 PM

On Tuesday, Professor Will Berry was interviewed by June Grasso of Bloomberg Radio on her “Bloomberg Law” program concerning Monday’s Supreme Court decision in Glossip v. Gross.  In a close 5-4 vote, the Court held that Oklahoma’s new lethal injection procedure was constitutional under the Eighth Amendment.  The case was also noteworthy because two justices questioned whether the death penalty is still constitutional.  Professor Berry has written extensively about the scope of the Eighth Amendment and the death penalty, including forthcoming articles in the Texas Law Review and Southern California Law Review.

The interview is available here.
