Hey Legal Aid,

The Supreme Court will not make any decisions on Troy Davis’s case until Wednesday. Troy’s death warrant will expire tonight. As such, the attorney general of Georgia will have to seek a new death warrant. Since the state of Georgia requires that two weeks notice be given prior to an execution, a new execution date cannot happen in the next two weeks. This means that the fight for Troy’s life will continue!
