Andrew Cohen of The Atlantic decries 11th Circuit's denial of relief for Warren Hill

"Executing the Mentally Handicapped is Illegal -- Except When It Isn't" in The Atlantic, April 23, 2013:"In Atkins, Justice Kennedy, ever the advocate of state autonomy, craftily permitted states like Georgia to use their own standards to determine which capital defendants are mentally retarded and which are not. Well, here we are. Every expert from Georgia who has evaluated Hill believes today that he is mentally retarded. No expert believes otherwise. What's Justice Kennedy going to do about that?"
