Tulia lawyer heads Tech Innocence Project

It'd be hard to find a better candidate to lead an Innocence Project in West Texas than our friend Jeff Blackburn, the Amarillo-based civil rights attorney who led the legal team in the Tulia cases from their earliest stages. Let's hope they have as much success as the original at Cardozo Law School in New York. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal had a nice story Sunday on Blackburn and the new Innocence Project based at the Texas Tech law school.
