Maryland's High Court Extends Right to Counsel to Initial Bail Hearing

This Friday’s CBC’s news documentary “The Fifth Estate” focuses on Shaken Baby Syndrome and the problems with it. I found it troubling that Canada and the United Kingdom candidly acknowledge that this syndrome is flawed and that innocents have been swept up in it. Mean while on my side of the border, with the exception of the Edmunds decision out of Wisconsin, there is no standing higher level appellate court upholding the a Daubert challenge to the same. I have to wonder if the now discredited expert (Dr. Charles Smith) was testifying on my side of the border whether he would still be testifying to this “science.”
