6th Circuit Denies Workman Appeal

With a cursory note (less than one page!) the 6th Circuit has denied an en banc hearing for Philip Workman regardless of the clear and convincing case presented by his attorneys. In fact, in their response, the 6th Circuit did not even give a reason for refusing to look at crucial evidence as a man faces his death! They merely said that less than a majority of the sitting judges present favored the motion! As far as I can tell this response was to the appeal of Workman's 60(b) motion, requesting that the courts examine the forensics evidence pointing to his innocence, and we are still awaiting a reply from the 6th Circuit regarding his lethal injection claims. The next step would be to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Justice indeed!
