The trans panic defence – a legal analysis

September 24, 2008

Via Lisa, I see that Dr. Jillian T. Weiss has posted a legal analysis of the trans panic defense at The Bilerico Project.

This is a very timely, and welcome, post in the light of the recent preliminary hearing in the Angie Zapata case – and let’s not forget the pre-trial hearing in the Larry King case, either.

Dr Weiss’ piece looks to be a very comprehensive explanation of the theory behind this defence and is well worth reading.
