Professor Ahn Publishes on Supreme Court Candidate

Professor Matthew Ahn has published an article, titled “No Compassion,” reporting his original research into potential Supreme Court nominee J. Michelle Childs’s criminal justice record as a district court judge. He looks at Judge Childs’s available decisions on motions for compassionate release, which he finds to be unfriendly to incarcerated individuals and largely dismissive of their concerns, both compared to other judges in South Carolina and nationwide. 

The article is published at Inquest, a forum created by Harvard Law School’s Institute to End Mass Incarceration.
