Jay Shapiro on Hall v. Florida: The Death Penalty and the Intellectually Disabled Revisited by the Supreme Court (PDF)

In Atkins v. Virginia, 536 U.S. 304 (2002), the Supreme Court held that it is unconstitutional to execute a person with an intellectual disability. Hall v. Florida, decided by the Court on May 27, 2014, holds that the Florida capital punishment law that defines intellectual disability as requiring a score of 70 or less on an IQ test violates the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution.
