Tuesday round-up

In the New York Times, Adam Liptak discusses Perry v. New Hampshire, set for argument in November, in which the Court will consider when due process protections apply to suggestive eyewitness identifications. Liptak notes that the Court last considered the issue of eyewitness testimony thirty-four years ago; since then, he observes, studies have shown that “it is perilous to base a conviction on a witness’s identification of a stranger.”
