    Update from Attorney General’s Office:

    I just wanted to let y’all know that the oral argument was held yesterday in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. At this point, we are awaiting a ruling from the Court. In regards to a timeframe for a ruling, the Eleventh Circuit does not have to rule within a certain amount of time. In some of our other death penalty cases, they have ruled within a couple of months. In other cases, however, it has taken them a year. I will contact you as soon as a ruling has been issued.

    Update from the Attorney General’s Office:

    The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to move forward on Mr. Holsey’s case. An oral argument before the Eleventh Circuit is scheduled for February 13, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. This argument will take place in Atlanta and will last about one hour. Mr. Holsey will not be transported for the argument.

    This is an update from the Attorney General’s Office:

    This afternoon, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion finding that Georgia’s beyond a reasonable doubt standard for proving mental retardation is not unconstitutional. Our office anticipates that defense counsel in that case will file an appeal in the United States Supreme Court regarding this ruling. I’ll keep you posted.

    In regards to Holsey’s case, I am unsure as to whether the Eleventh Circuit will now move forward on his case. As you may remember, Holsey’s case was set for oral argument, which was then postponed due to the above-mentioned case. I would not be surprised if the Eleventh Court held off on setting an oral argument in Holsey until a decision has been made by the United States Supreme Court as to whether they will accept the case challenging the standard for proving mental retardation.

    Update from the Attorney General’s Office:

    This e-mail serves as an update in the above-referenced death penalty case. Our office is still awaiting a ruling by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals on whether Georgia’s beyond a reasonable doubt standard for proving mental retardation is unconstitutional. Today, the Georgia Supreme Court issued an opinion in another death penalty case finding that Georgia’s burden of proof for proving mental retardation was constitutional. Following the release of this decision, our office immediately filed a supplemental brief with the Eleventh Circuit informing them of this ruling by the Georgia Supreme Court.

    Update from Attorney General’s Office:

    I am writing to inform you of a scheduling order that was recently entered by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Hill v. Schofield, which requires briefing by both parties as to whether Georgia’s beyond a reasonable doubt standard for proving mental retardation is unconstitutional. The attorneys representing Mr. Hill must file their brief by December 22, 2010, and our office will have until January 21, 2011 to file a responsive brief. The Court has stated that the case will be argued during the week of February 14, 2011.

    Update on the appeal in the case of Hill v. Schofield as it has a direct impact on Mr. Holsey’s appeal. In Hill, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently entered an order vacating the prior decision which held that Georgia’s beyond a reasonable doubt standard for proving mental retardation was unconstitutional. The Court also granted our motion requesting a rehearing of the case before the entire Court. At this point, we are awaiting a briefing schedule from the Court. Following the briefing by both parties, the Hill case will be orally argued before the entire Court.

    On September 1, 2009, the United States District Court granted William’s killer’s request to appeal to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals on certain issues. When the Eleventh Circuit issues a scheduling order, we will know the due dates for briefs. Let’s hope the Court will do their homework, study the briefs and decide not to hear the case. He needs to hurry up and die.
