Commutata sentenza di morte in ergastolo a Deryl Madison - Texas

Mayer Brown secures withdrawal of death sentence for client Deryl Madison

Press Release - Pro Bono, United States


July 24, 2009 Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, has secured a withdrawal of the death sentence for longstanding client Deryl Madison in exchange for a sentence of life without parole. Mr. Madison was found guilty of capital murder on June 19, 1989.

When Mayer Brown took on this case in 2001, Madison faced an execution date only three weeks away. The team first obtained a stay of execution and then an order tolling the expired time limits applicable for bringing a habeas corpus petition under the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act. Subsequently, US District Judge Nancy Atlas of the Southern District of Texas (Houston) granted the teams motion for summary judgment, issuing a writ granting habeas corpus relief based on the Supreme Courts decisions in Penry and Tennard. This week, the team reached an agreement with the Harris County District Attorneys office to terminate the threat of execution. In support of its representation, Mayer Brown also filed a series of amicus briefs on issues central to Madisons defense in the US Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Over more than eight years, the Mayer Brown team included more than 50 partners, counsel, associates, summer associates and paralegals.
