Advocates for two African Americans on death row for murder are seeking a reprieve for both men on the grounds their trials were tainted by racial bias, taking their campaigns all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.So his last resort is now intervention by the Supreme Court, which rejected a previous appeal by his lawyers' last year. His lawyers have asked the court to take up the case again.On April 22 the Supreme Court rules on whether to take up a much higher-profile case -- that of Duane Buck -- which involves similar allegations of racial bias in the trial process.At the time, several of the justices qualified as "bizarre and objectionable" the testimony of the psychologist, but the court stopped short of agreeing to review the case.Both papers highlighted the fact that other men sentenced to die in cases involving testimony by the same psychologist were granted fresh hearings.
