Just because they (witnesses) are unequivocal, doesn't mean they're right," said McKee, who just finished a term as chief judge of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. "The law has not kept up with the science."

McKee wrote a damning opinion in the death-row case in August, concurring with the 5-4 majority that granted a Philadelphia man named James Dennis a new trial in the 1991 transit stop murder of a high school junior killed for her $450 gold earrings.
