EvidenceProf in the New York Times: Baruch College Hazing Death & the Admissibility of Computer Animations

On December 9th, freshman, Chun Hsien Deng died during at fraternity hazing ritual at Pennsylvania's Baruch College. According to a New York Times article by Ariel Kaminer,

Charges had been expected to be filed by May, but Chief Lewis said prosecutors were still awaiting a medical report and a digital animation that would depict the events surrounding the death....

I spole with Ms. Kaminer about Commonwealth v. Sarge, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania case that will goven the admissibility of digital animation in the case, and I'm quoted in her article. Back in 2007, I posted an entry about a Christmas Eve shooting in Pennsylvania an the dispute over whether computer animations should have been deemed admissible at the ensuing trial.
