Arson, Fire Science, and Habeas – Case Details, CA vs. Souliotes

Mark Godsey recently posted an article on a US District Court ruling about a “time-bar” exemption to habeas law in an arson case that was driven by new developments in fire science.  See that post here.

For those of you who may be interested in the details of the case, here is the original magistrate’s ruling that was upheld by the US District Court:

Habeas Ruling New Fire Science

This was made available by renowned fire scientist John Lentini, who worked on the case.

FYI.  It was necessary for me to post this as a new post, rather than a comment to Mark’s original post, because I can’t embed a document in a comment.  Thank you.
