Professor Christopher Blakesley Quoted by Several Media Outlets Regarding Amanda Knox Trial

Christopher Blakesley is The Cobeaga Law Firm Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Recently, he has been quoted by several media outlets regarding the Amanda Knox trial. Below is a list of articles he has been cited in:

"'There's room to fight extradition,' Blakesley said, 'and double jeopardy is the spot to fight on…. In the treaty, we functionally accept their system of justice, but it's up to a magistrate to decide whether' the double jeopardy clause of the Constitution was violated and if that trumps the treaty," the ABC News article reads.

Professor Blakesley is a Barrick Distinguished Scholar, 2009.
