North Carolina News Service

Raleigh, NC – The North Carolina Supreme Court is preparing to hear the cases of three death-row inmates who had their sentences converted to life in prison without possibility of parole, under the Racial Justice Act.

Six retired judges – including two retired chief justices of the State Supreme Court – filed a brief on Monday urging the Supreme Court to confirm the initial rulings. The North Carolina NAACP also filed a brief in support. Comments from Irving Joyner, law professor at N-C Central University School of Law.
