Here are a few interesting court stories for your weekend reading:
You may recall, the El Paso County District Attorney’s office has dealt with cases of teenagers sending sexually explicit text-messages. Here’s a recent story in the New York Times on the topic.
Also in the Times, there was this blog post on a dispute over whether to allow reporters to tweet from the courtroom during a hearing for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
My friend and former Rocky Mountain News colleague Sara Burnett had this interesting story in the Denver Post about federal prosecutors seeking the death penalty against two men accused of killing fellow inmates at the Supermax prison in Florence.
And finally, my friend and colleague Andrew Cohen had this analysis in The Atlantic on a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision.
