Nina Morrison, senior staff attorney for the Innocence Project at Yeshiva University's Cardozo School of Law, talks about the highly publicized case of Texan Michael Morton during her Feb. 26 keynote address at the Virginia Journal of Criminal Law's annual symposium. Sentenced in 1987 to life in prison for the murder of his wife, Morton was exonerated in 2011 after Morrison and Houston attorney John Raley uncovered gross violations of Texas discovery rules: the prosecuting attorney had withheld from the defense numerous pieces of key exculpatory evidence.
