Ind. Decisions - More on today's 7th Circuit decisons

Apparently I shouldn't have skipped reading the non-Indiana 7th Circuit decisions today. Howard Bashman of How Appealing reports here in a comment headed "Clothes may make the man, but a criminal defendant's appearance at trial in a prison jumpsuit doesn't always necessitate reversal," on Whitman v. Barlow, a Wisconsin case where Whitman appeared before the jury in an orange prison jumpsuit.

And here Bashman writes briefly about another 7th Circuit ruling today, Scarver v. Litscher, by Judge Posner, relating to the rights of the prisoner who, in prison, murdered "the notorious Jeffrey Dahmer—the cannibal murderer of 17 young men."
