The countdown to SCOW’s final decision this term continues. As of today, there are 9 to go, with 3 scheduled to be released on Wednesday July 6th. One particular case is attracting a lot of national attention: State v. Loomis, which concerns a circuit court’s ability to rely on COMPAS assessments when imposing a sentence. In May, Pro Publica published an exposé on COMPAS and paid special attention to Loomis. Ten days ago Loomis made the New York Times. And on July 1st it claimed the first 4 minutes of Science Friday with Ira Flatow.
