    Wow, well-written and well-reasoned decision.

    Now to see what the DA does with it.

    Very good, no for a fair decision.

    Great news.

    That needs a dance,

    AZ is closer to being off my DO NOT travel list.

    Thank God this man is getting a new trial. This was so unjust from the very start. My prayers are with him and his family as he goes forth to a fairer trial and finally being vindicated.
    2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    Here's some more great news. The AZ legislature passed SB1449 last night, with makes the new 2006 self-defense law retroactive to Fish's case. This means that, unlike the first trial, the burden of proof is on the prosecution (where it BELONGS!) to refute Mr. Fish's claim of self-defense.

    This may be a dumb question, but did Mr. Fish have to go to prison and do time while awaiting his appeal?

    Great news!

    That's encouraging!
