Gross and O'Brien on False Convictions

O'brien barbara Samuel R. Gross and Barbara O'Brien  (University of Michigan Law School and Michigan State University - College of Law) have posted Reply to Richard A. Leo and Jon B. Gould
(Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law, Vol. 9, 2010) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

In this brief reply we dispute some of their methodological assertions, and point out that while Leo and Gould take issue in some detail with our cautious and generally pessimistic view of research in this area, they do not actually dispute any of our empirical conclusions.
