Roger Smith, Sr., and Elisa Cyre Featured in NC Lawyers Weekly for Amicus Brief

Tharrington Smith attorneys Roger Smith, Sr. and Elisa Cyre filed an amicus brief in the North Carolina Court of Appeals case State v. Meadows on behalf of the N.C. Advocates for Justice in support of the defendant.  The court sided with the defendant, holding that the results of new, untested narcotics technology were inadmissible at trial. The case, according to Smith and Cyre, raises broader questions about how new technologies get into the legal system and become a part of the process that determines guilt or innocence.
