Marc Bookman takes an in-depth look a the Georgia case of Robert Holsey in, "This Man Is About to Die Because an Alcoholic Lawyer Botched His Case," at Mother Jones. The second part of the article is, "The Georgia Supreme Court opinion never mentions Prince's alcoholism." Here's the beginning of this must-read:
When people recount their alcohol consumption after a night on the town, or even a serious bender, they usually think about it in terms of drinks. Very rarely do they calibrate their intake in quarts. So most of us don't have a good sense of just how much a quart of vodka is — a bit more than 21 shots, as it turns out. That's the amount of alcohol lawyer Andy Prince consumed every night during the death penalty trial of his client, Robert Wayne Holsey, a low-functioning man with a tortured past who now stands on the brink of execution in Georgia.
