The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Buck v. Davis, docket number 15-8049. The case concerns whether Duane Buck can appeal his death penalty sentence based on testimony by a witness called by his own lawyer, who claimed Mr. Buck is more likely to commit future crimes because he is black.

On February 22, 2017, the court ruled 6-2 that racial bias played a role in Duane Buck receiving a death sentence. The court held that Mr. Buck demonstrated ineffective assistance of counsel and is entitled to relief. The court’s ruling allows the Texas death row inmate to argue for a new sentencing hearing before a lower court. close
