    The Mississippi state flag is displayed in the senate subway on June 29, 2020 in Washington, DC. Tennessee, of all places, appears to have acknowledged what Black and brown folks have long seen clearly: the Confederate flag is nothing more than a pure symbol of racism. Fast forward to last Friday, when the Tennessee court of criminal appeals granted a new trial for a Black man convicted while sitting in a courtroom adorned with Confederate symbols—including a Confederate flag and a portrait of Jefferson Davis—an infamous slaveholder and the president of the Confederate States, who once said in a speech in 1860 that slavery was “a form of civil government for those who by their nature are not fit to govern themselves,” adding “We recognize the fact of the inferiority stamped upon that race by the Creator, and from cradle to grave, our government, as a civil institution, marks that inferiority.”  The 31-page decision, which reversed a 2020 lower court ruling that denied Tim Gilbert’s request for a new trial, cited the power of the racist symbols and what they conveyed about the...

    YORK, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered a new trial for a man accused of killing his wife and then faking an all-terrain vehicle accident to cover up the slaying almost a decade ago. The state’s highest court ruled 5-2 Friday that 48-year-old Joseph Fitzpatrick III might not have been convicted of first-degree murder in York County in 2015 without the admission into evidence of a note from his wife which the court called inadmissible hearsay that injected “significant prejudice” into the trial, the York Daily Record reported.

Authorities alleged that he wanted out of his marriage, was emotionally involved with another woman and had a $1.7 million life insurance policy on his wife. Hours before her death, prosecutors have said, Annemarie Fitzpatrick wrote, dated and signed a note in her day-planner at work saying “If anything happens to me...
    TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) — A man accused of participating in an attack on another inmate who was stabbed 130 times during a 2017 prison uprising in southeast Nebraska appears to be headed for a new trial. The Nebraska Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that 30-year-old Eric Ramos should be retried for first-degree murder after his first trial ended in a mistrial in 2018, according to the Omaha World-Herald. Ramos' first trial was called off after the judge learned that several investigators who were all witnesses in the case met in violation of a court order barring them from talking to each other about the case during the trial. After the violent outbreak at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution, 31-year-old Michael Galindo was found dead in a cell after being attacked by a group of inmates and stabbed repeatedly. Prosecutors said surveillance video showed Ramos participated in the attack. Ramos' attorneys argued at his first trial that he had been misidentified as being involved in the murder.

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — An appeals court has ordered a new trial for a New Jersey attorney convicted almost three years ago of having endangered the welfare of a child. NJ.com reports that the appellate panel issued an Oct. 9 ruling faulting the judge's instructions to the jury that convicted David Alcantara of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child in January 2018. Prosecutors alleged that Alcantara began endangering the girl in 2005 when she was 10-years-old through such things as unwanted physical contact, and the conduct continued through 2012, when she contacted police. The appeals court ruled that the judge’s instructions to the jury “did not sufficiently impress on the jurors that they were required to share a common view of the material facts.” The panel said a jury with such instructions could convict even if jurors didn't agree on what the actual sexual misconduct was alleged to be. There was no immediate word on when a new trial might be held. Atlantic County prosecutors couldn't immediately be reached for comment. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved....
    NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge has ordered a new trial for a self-made health care millionaire who was convicted six years ago of fatally drugging her 8-year-old autistic son in a luxury New York City hotel room in 2010. Friday’s ruling by Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Sarah Cave stems from a 2014 closed courtroom discussion that was requested by the lead prosecutor in the case. Cave determined the off-the-record exchange regarding online material had violated Gigi Jordan’s Sixth Amendment right to a public trial. At the time, one of Jordan’s lawyers repeatedly objected to the private discussion. “The trial court’s closure of the courtroom was deliberate, over the multiple, strenuous objections of Jordan’s counsel, and was a closure that the trial court in fact acknowledged after the fact may well have been erroneous,” Cave wrote, arguing that Jordan’s right to a public trial applied to the proceeding. A spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. said in a written statement that the office “strenuously disagrees” with the ruling and intends to immediately appeal the decision to Manhattan...

    AURORA, Ill. (AP) — An Aurora woman convicted of hiring someone to kill her ex-boyfriend must receive a new trial, an Illinois appeals court ordered this week. Maricela Arciga, 33, was found guilty in July 2014 of solicitation of murder for hire and sentenced to 20 years in prison. The Aurora Beacon-News reports that a state appellate court found Arciga did not have a fair trial, including her attorney's failure to present evidence that she did not have a criminal history. The court ordered that she receive a new trial in Kane County. No date has been set. During Arciga's trial, prosecutors said she told her new boyfriend that she wanted to have her ex-boyfriend shot. Prosecutors said the boyfriend had previously worked with Aurora Police as an informant and contacted authorities, who arranged for a federal agent to pose as a hitman and meet with Arciga. During the trial, Arciga argued that she had been entrapped by police. She also testified that her ex-boyfriend threatened to kill her but police were unhelpful when she reported suspected harassment. Copyright 2020...
