controversy around appearance of Iraqi Federation of Trade Unions in Boston
16 Jun 2005
Modified: 08:15:48 PM

Thomas Miller-El wins new trial
16 Jun 2005
miller-el133.jpgIn a six-to-three decision on June 13, the U.S. Supreme Court sharply rebuked Texas prosecutors as well as Texas appeals courts, ruling that their excuses for racism in jury selection are unconstitutional.
