Michael A. Millemann (University of Maryland - School of Law) has posted Limiting Death: Maryland's New Death Penalty Law (Maryland Law Review, Vol. 70, No. 1, p. 272, 2010) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
In this Article, I describe and analyze the State of Maryland's 2009 death penalty law. This law adds three new death-eligibility criteria to the pre-existing law. These new evidentiary criteria supplement the pre-existing substantive death-eligibility criteria. As a result, Maryland now has one of the most restrictive death penalties in the country.
