News&Observer: 119 on death row allege bias

There is not much new information in this article besides the comments under the sub heading “case by case, please.”

“Prosecutors, who before the [Racial Justice Act] was adopted complained that challenges by most death row inmates would bog down the courts, are now pushing for cases to be heard on an individual basis.”

This comes after the initial attorneys to file motions requested to consolidate their cases to save court time and money. District attorneys are still consulting with lawyers on how to handle these cases, be it cumulatively where one judge would rule on the common issues, or individually taking into account the specific details of each case.
