The Dookhan Mess

The Boston Globe describes why the Massachusetts drug-lab mess persists.  “Incredibly, more than four years after Dookhan’s crimes were first uncovered… Thousands of those whose lives were affected haven’t been notified of their rights, including the possibility of a new trial. Many still have no idea they are Dookhan defendants.”  Apparently, “none of the prosecutors have taken it upon themselves to notify defendants their cases might have been compromised, leaving that task to the cash-strapped Committee for Public Counsel Services, which simply cannot make a dent in the massive problem.”
