Today, the SCT released its opinion in Foster v. Chatman. Here is a brief summary of the opinion taken from the ABA's Criminal Justice Section.
Summary: The Court held that the Georgia Supreme Court's holding that there was no purposeful discrimination in the prosecution's elimination of all black prospective jurors during Foster's trial was clearly erroneous. The Court determined that notes from the prosecution's file strongly demonstrated a discriminatory motivation behind the peremptory striking of all of the qualified black jurors, and a "concerted effort to keep black prospective jurors off the jury."
