An amicus brief by Paul Cassell, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, was quoted in an April 17, 2012 editorial in The Washington Post.
The editorial, “Unjust crack penalties continue to plague defendants,” quotes an amicus brief Cassell co-authored and filed to the Supreme Court: ““Many Americans, particularly in minority communities, have come to regard the federal criminal justice system with suspicion because of the ill-founded crack/powder disparity. That harmful perception will continue and, indeed, be strengthened if this Court refuses to immediately apply Congress’s corrective action.”
