Ten Ohio State University Moritz College of Law students and recent graduates were credited with providing valuable research to the American Bar Association’s Evaluating Fairness and Accuracy in the State Death Penalty Systems: The Ohio Death Penalty Assessment Report. The report, which was released September 24, 2007, urges Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland to temporarily suspend executions to allow time for a thorough review of the state’s capital punishment administration.
Class of 2007 graduates Douglas Stoll and Steven Tung, joined now third-year law students Sarah Exten, Sam Hamilton, Jeremy Iskin, Nate Kamotani, Ryan Muennich, Veronica Norman, Veena Reddy, and Tiffany Romine to research the project.
Ohio is the seventh of eight states being assessed under the ABA’s Death Penalty Moratorium Implementation Project. The review, which took 30 months, was led by law professors and attorneys from around Ohio.
