Petition to reform the AEDPA

According to Judge Alex Kozinski, “Federal judges have been pretty much shut out … from granting habeas relief in most cases, even when they believe that an egregious miscarriage of justice has occurred. We now regularly have to stand by in impotent silence, even though it may appear to us that an innocent person has been convicted.”

See Gutting Habeas Corpus : The Inside Story of How Bill Clinton Sacrificed Prisoners’ Rights for Political Gain The Intercept, May 4, 2016, for how this came about.

Please sign this petition calling for the President of the United States and Congress to act to correct this situation, and to allow Federal judges to act when they believe a miscarriage of justice has occurred.
