Shaken Baby Syndrome

Carol J. Williams, Brown commutes sentence of woman convicted of killing grandson, LATimes (April 7, 2012).

In the courts:
Cavazos v. Smith, 132 S.Ct. 2 (2011) (per curiam; Ginsburg, Breyer & Sotomayor, dissenting), reversing Smith v.Mitchell, 437 F.3d 884 (9th Cir. 2006).

It would better if syndrome evidence of every kind were banished from the courtrooms of our land.
