Supreme Court Ruled 5-4 that you do not have a right to test DNA evidence... ONE VOTE makes all the difference in life. Won't you want this right?

from The Wall Street Journal

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that convicts have no constitutional right to test DNA evidence in hopes of proving their innocence long after they were found guilty of a crime.

The decision may have limited impact because the federal government and 47 states already have laws that allow convicts some access to genetic evidence.

Separately, the court agreed to reinstate a roughly $500 million settlement of asbestos lawsuits against Travelers.
