SB 1437 Ruled Constitutional by Appellate Court

November 21, 2019

Following the opinions published by the court, California State Senator Nancy Skinner, the author of SB 1437, issued a statement.

“Justice won today,” Skinner said. “The appellate court got it right: SB 1437, which reformed California’s old, unfair felony-murder rule, is clearly constitutional. With this decisive decision, I urge district attorneys throughout California to drop their challenges and join with AG Xavier Becerra in enforcing the state’s new felony-murder statute.”
