Title: Disability Advocacy and the Death Penalty: The Road from Penry to Atkins
Author: Ellis, James
Abstract: This article focuses on Atkins as an example of the Court's methodology in interpreting the Eighth Amendment, with its unique juxtaposition of legislative action and constitutional text. It also explores the relationship of advocacy interests, in this case professional and voluntary organizations in the disability community, with both legislatures and the Court.
