Project Hosts Section of Litigation Death Penalty Program

On January 10, 2009 at the ABA Section of Litigation Winter Leadership Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Project hosted “The ABA’s Role in Changing Capital Representation.”

The global economic crisis is having a significant impact on the available funding for indigent capital defense across the U.S. Many states have imposed across-the-board reductions for staff and funding in all state offices, which have particularly severe effects on indigent defense services because of their existing tight budgets. The current fiscal emergencies have, without a doubt, created crises for indigent capital defense in almost every death penalty jurisdiction.
