Professor Chad W. Flanders wrote a timely article about the Sept. 15 decision of the Jason Stockley murder case. In the article published by the Saint Louis University Law Journal, he explains some of the existing Missouri law that Judge Timothy Wilson of the 22nd Circuit Court in Missouri used in his opinion. He writes:
"At the end of the day, the decision Judge Wilson made was based on his call on various disputed factual questions. The law was not, for the most part, at issue. I attempt only to describe the legal framework within with Judge Wilson decided the case; not to support or to criticize his verdict. Each person will ultimately have to make his or her own judgment about whether the decision was correct."
Professor Flanders teaches and writes in the areas of criminal law, constitutional law and the philosophy of law.
