CRJ 150 McCleskey v. Kemp The case began with Warren McCleskey, an African-American man who was sentenced to death in 1978 for killing a white police officer during the robbery of a Georgia furniture store. McCleskey appealed his conviction and sentence, relying on the Eighth Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment and the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of Equal Protection to argue that the death penalty in Georgia was administered in a racially discriminatory -- and therefore unconstitutional--manner. Jack Boger, then director of LDF’s Capital Punishment Project, argued the case before the Supreme Court on Mr. McCleskey’s behalf. Joining him on the briefs were Julius Chambers, James Nabrit III, Anthony G. Amsterdam, Deval Patrick, Robert Stroup, Vivian Berger, and Timothy Ford. In support of McCleskey’s argument, LDF presented the United States Supreme Court with strong statistical evidence showing that race played a pivotal role in the Georgia capital punishment system.
United States. Brandon Mayfield was detained for being falsely accused of involvement with the 2004 Madrid train bombings due to an erroneously read fingerprint (Mayfield v. United States, 2010). Authorities jumped the gun when they thought Mayfield’s fingerprint was an 100% match to the fingerprint on the bag containing explosives in Madrid. Once Mayfield was found to have no involvement in the bombing he was released and offered monetary compensation for the distress caused to his family and himself. However, no monetary amount could correct the trauma that was brought upon this man by his own government.

When Filt brought the card to some sport-card grading services, they all said the card had been refinished and trimmed. Strek tricked Filt into buying this card, but it was not an original card; this was clearly a fraud. The related issue that I noticed about this case and my project court case was the facts show that the defendant, Win Van Lines, Inc. lost or stole client’s expensive properties, but it refused to accept the fault. In both these cases, the defendant lost because they had committed fraud and crime. I agreed with the court’s decision that the defendants of both these cases should pay the plaintiff the exact amount of what they had lost.
