SJC rules on Dookhan cases, presumption of misconduct by state

The court ruled that "the defendant is entitled to a conclusive presumption that Dookhan's misconduct occurred in his case, that it was egregious, and that it is attributable to the Commonwealth."
The case is Commonwealth v. ScottSJC-11465. March 5, 2014.
And, in another anticipated decision, "upskirting" is not against the law as it exists.
