Supreme Court to Hear Duane Buck Case October 5th
The U.S. Supreme Court has set the date for oral arguments in TDS client Duane Buck’s case, Buck v. Davis. The case will be heard Wednesday, October 5, during the Court’s first week of its next term.
On June 6, the Court announced that it would hear Mr. Buck’s case. He was sentenced to death after defense counsel called an “expert” who the prosecution relied on in claiming that Duane would be more dangerous in the future because he is African American.
