"The Real Price of Trying KSM: Defense lawyers will inevitably create bad law"

Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy excerpts this article by David Feige at Slate, which predicts that valid arguments will be rejected by courts too cowardly to face the consequences of applying the law faithfully, putting bad law on the books that will apply in all cases. If that's true, it seems to me that the headline should be focusing on judges and not defense lawyers. But the article itself is worth reading.
