Morrow v. Ford

Juvenile Law Center joined Child USA; The Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma; The Leadership Council on Child Abuse & Interpersonal Violence; and Dr. Murray David Schane of Malesurvivor on an amicus brief filed in the United States Supreme Court on behalf of Scotty Morrow, who was sentenced to death. Our brief urged the court to grant certiorari to address the lower court’s failure to adequately consider Mr. Morrow’s childhood sexual abuse as powerful mitigating evidence counseling against the imposition of the death penalty.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied Mr. Morrow's Petition for Writ of Certiorari.
