"A continuing wave of exonerations and wrongful convictions linked to false eyewitness identification have led more states to consider reforming their lineup procedures through new guidelines and legislation.
A key factor is the order in which lineups should be shown as more states consider whether to replace the traditional simultaneous method with the sequential procedure, during which people or photographs are shown one after another instead of all at once." [RJ]
