Stephen LaValle and the State of New York

Yeeee haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! The Court of Appeals for the State of New York (the highest court in the state) has overturned the death sentence of Stephen LaValle. In the process, it has invalidated the state's death penalty law. Until the legislature "fixes" a problem the Court saw with the jury instructions, the Court of Appeals has said that the death penalty cannot be imposed. Amazing.
