Pryor's latest 42 U.S.C. 1983 May 02, 2005 04:08 pm
Unless Judge Pryor is really an activist in judicial clothing, I'd say he's doing pretty well. In his most recent opinion (affirming a denial of a habeas petition under the AEDPA), he at least identified the prosecutor, Nancy Grace, and took her to task (though in a nice way).

Actually, the latter point is pretty big. One peeve civil libertarians have is judges who find prosecutorial misconduct often refuse to name the prosecutor.

According to Judge Pryor's opinion, Nancy Grace, "suppressed" exculpatory evidence; "knowingly" elicited testimony that "appear[ed] to be false"; and "fail[ed] ... to fulfill her responsibilities" as a prosecutor. That's about a tough-talking as appellate judges get.
