Judge Lucretia Clemons of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas repeatedly used procedural rules (like the time-bar) — rather than allowing for an examination of the new evidence — in her 31-page decision dismissing Mumia Abu-Jamal’s petition for a new trial on Oct. 26, 2022. Judge Clemons’s decision rewards the Prosecution for hiding evidence showing Mumia’s innocence, a common form of prosecutorial misconduct that Black defendants in Philadelphia courts face.
Mumia’s attorneys Judith Ritter, Sam Spital, and Bret Grote respond to Judge Lucretia Clemons’s Oct. 26, 2022, legal document of intent to deny Mumia Abu-Jamal’s appeals for the right to re-open his trial based on new evidence found in boxes from the DA’s office. Read this 32-page document.
