Making A Murderer's Brendan Dassey denied Supreme Court appeal

Netflix

The ruling, which comes days after the Supreme Court issued a similar decision in a partisan gerrymandering case out of Wisconsin, means the three-judge panel that ruled in January that North Carolina lawmakers were too partisan in drawing congressional district lines must hear the case again.

Dassey's attorney Laura Nirider responded to the Supreme Court's decision, saying that she and the rest of Dassey's legal team will not give up their fight to get his conviction overturned.

The Supreme Court will not be taking up Brendan Dassey's case, at least not for now. At age 16, he was convicted of being party to first-degree murder, mutilation of a corpse, and second-degree sexual assault. "His confession was not voluntary and his conviction should not stand, and yet an impaired teenager has been sentenced to life in prison". However, many believe that Dassey, who has a learning disability and an IQ of 70 was coerced into confessing by police during the interrogation.

"The video of Brendan's interrogation shows a confused boy who was manipulated by experienced police officers into accepting their story of how the murder of Teresa Halbach happened", Dassey's lawyers said.

Steven Avery, the central figure in Making a Murderer, is still appealing his case. Soon afterward, she was informed that she was being sued by the Washington state attorney general and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Favorable U.S. tax ruling gives limited boost to big-box retailers
While Amazon and other large online retailers regularly collect sales taxes on purchases, many others have refused to do so. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision Thursday that online retailers can now collect sales taxes on out-of-state purchases.

"Today's Supreme Court decision makes clear that the district which I serve will not change an inch from its original 2011 gerrymandered shape", Doggett said.

His lawyers said his confession, which was taped and aired in portions of the series, shouldn't have been used to convict him. "Dassey's borderline to below average intellectual ability likely made him more susceptible to coercive pressures than a peer of higher intellect" and he did not have "the benefit of an adult present to look out for his interests", a court document read. The state Supreme Court didn't buy it. She spends months or even years getting to know the bride and groom, in order to understand their vision and what they want to convey.

According to new reports, the Supreme Court, the judicial branch of the United States government, will not hear Brendan Dassey's appeal. Texas took the case to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court said the district court should use the legislature's map as a starting point for redistricting.

In a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, the conservative justices decided, as Politico reported, that "lower courts went too far in concluding that maps adopted by Texas in 2013 were tainted by discrimination judges found in maps the state drew two years earlier". Then, in late 2017, the full appeals court ruled 4-3 that the state courts' determination that Dassey's confession was voluntary was reasonable, meaning no release or retrial.
