  • Aug 21 Eyewitness Evidence in the Courts 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    Eyewitness testimony can be incredibly powerful in court. "There is almost nothing more convincing," Justice William J. Brennan Jr. wrote in a 1981 dissent, "than a live human being who takes the stand, points a finger at the defendant, and says, 'That's the one!'" However, we now know that eyewitness memory is fragile and it is malleable. This panel will explore how eyewitness misidentifications can cause wrongful convictions. Second, the panelists will discuss scientific research on how improved lineup procedures can help to improve reliability of eyewitness evidence. Third, the panelists will discuss how to address these questions in the courtroom, including through jury instructions. Panelists will include: Judge Ted McKee, U.S. Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit; Karen Newirth, Darrel Stephens, Jon Gould, Tom Albright, and Prof. Brandon Garrett as moderator. Lunch provided. Sponsored by Professor Garrett. For more information, please contact Sarah Holsapple at sarah.holsapple@law.duke.edu.
