Justice for Christopher Dunn
On August 31, 2021, the Missouri Supreme Court refused to hear or consider Christopher Dunn's case. No reasons were given. The Court disregarded and disrespected the authority of Missouri 25th Circuit judge William E. Hickle and his September 2020 order stating that Christopher Dunn is innocent. In the order, Judge Hickle stated his belief that he was bound by the Lincoln v. Cassady precedent, and therefore prevented from releasing Christopher Dunn, even though he met the requirements for a freestanding claim of actual innocence. The order is embedded below.
