Adam Pritchard, 3L at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, wrote an article titled “Joe Hill One Hundred Years Later: The Case for Reliable Hearsay Never Died” in the Labor Law Journal Spring 2015 issue. The article is both historical, and a legal analysis of hearsay. Pritchard received a B.A. in History from the University of Utah (2011). The story was co-authored with Kenneth Lougee, an attorney at Siegfried & Jensen.
With the 100-year anniversary of the execution of the labor song writer Joe Hill in November 2015, the Labor Law Journal is pleased to feature the following article arguing that reliable hearsay provided powerful exculpatory evidence for Hill that could have and should have been admitted under the residual hearsay exception.
