In the Dark podcast: Supreme Court will hear Curtis Flowers’s appeal - Vox.com

Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall favored its complete abolition. And a 1986 Supreme Court case, Batson v. Kentucky, established that peremptory challenge cannot be used to discriminate against jurors based on race, ethnicity, or sex. But that's not always a guarantee of fairness. In fact, in each of Flowers's first four trials, Evans used all of his juror "strikes," including his peremptory challenges, with the apparent intent to remove as many black jurors from the jury selection as he could. Flowers's appeal of his latest 2010 conviction rests on this aspect of the case, and his petition minces no words about how Evans used peremptory challenges to racially discriminate against him: Through the first four trials, prosecutor Doug Evans relentlessly removed as many qualified African American jurors as he could. He struck all ten African Americans who came up for consideration during the first two trials, and he used all twenty-six of his allotted strikes against African Americans at the third and fourth trials. Two previous courts found that Evans's conduct violated Flowers's right to equal protection under the 14th Amendment. In fact, in 2007, the Mississippi state Supreme Court found that Evans's behavior represented "as strong [a] case of racial discrimination as we have ever seen in the context of a Batson challenge." Now, the current appeal, which has reached the US Supreme Court, is arguing that the Mississippi state Supreme Court should have considered Evans's established history of using peremptory challenges to violate Flowers's rights when it upheld Flowers's 2010 conviction. It points out that Batson v. Kentucky explicitly orders courts to consider established patterns of discrimination by attorneys when they decide the merits of peremptory challenges. Without taking this context into account, Flowers's lawyers argue, the "unintended message" the courts are sending to attorneys when they use peremptory challenges to discriminate is, "Just be careful to cover your tracks." The rule that peremptory challenges can't be used to discriminate is well-established in judicial procedure. New Supreme Court appointee Brett Kavanaugh even wrote about the issue when he was a Yale law student; at the time, he argued that the defense team in a case should always be allowed to hear and rebut a prosecutor's peremptory challenges in order to prevent discrimination. In 2016, the Supreme Court issued a nearly unanimous decision upholding the Batson v. Kentucky precedent. The current Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments in Flowers's case in an order issued on Friday. If the Court rules against Flowers's appeal, it would mark a surprising shift in the way courts are allowed to view peremptory challenges, which could in turn substantially alter the way peremptory challenges work during criminal proceedings. Such a shift would most likely work against the defendants who most need equal protection under the law. However, if the Court finds in favor of Flowers, it has an opportunity to expand upon the previous rulings to strengthen the limits of the peremptory challenge and to compel lower...

MYSTERY PLANT: Flowers resemble shooting star

I ever saw it, here in South Carolina, just north of Columbia, in the spring of 1973. It was on a class field trip with my professor, Dr. Wade T. Batson, one of the patron saints of southern botany. I’ll never forget the scene: the dainty flowers of this native species, accompanied by buttercups, atamasco lily, and wild geranium, all dancing in the light spring breeze.So much for the good news. If there is bad news, it is probably that this species, along with plenty of others, are declining in the wild, in part due to indiscriminate digging by plant fanciers, but also by loss of habitat.This one is easy to grow as a garden plant, but care should be taken to insure that purchased plants come only from reputable dealers, and never from wild-collected populations.Fortunately there are still plenty of places to see healthy populations; in South Carolina, Stevens Creek Heritage Preserve, in McCormick County, provides such an opportunity. If you’re interested in seeing this species, check with your local Natural Heritage office or investigate your state’s native plant society.John Nelson is the curator of the A.C. Moore Herbarium at the University of South Carolina, in the Department of Biological Sciences, Columbia. As a public service, the herbarium offers free plant identifications.
