Prof. Clary Quoted in Minnesota Lawyer on Court of Appeals Decision Regarding Evidence Rules in Minnesota

Professor Brad Clary was quoted in a Minnesota Lawyer article entitled "New Trial for Man Convicted of Murder." Clary stated, "Part of the problem is that the ultimate decision in both state and federal court on this is the matter of the discretion of the district judge. The Court of Appeals was having difficulty seeing why the state should be allowed to introduce the Spreigl prior bad acts evidence in the prosecution's case-in-chief as opposed to in rebuttal to the defendant's self-defense claim. I think the Court of Appeals was correct to be skeptical of that."
