### ex parte Briseno (2004, TX) decision now posted. Adaptive behavior in TX Atkins cases

The Texas Briseno factors, which relate to the evaluation of the adaptive behavior prong in Texas MR/ID Atkins death penalty cases, is often mentioned in Texas Atkins cases (click here for all ICDP posts that may mention Briseno).  It was brought to my attention that a copy of the original decision was not available here at ICDP.  Thanks to Karen Salekin and on of her students that situation has now been rectified.  You can access ex parte Briseno (2004) now (and it is not listed in the Court Decisions blog roll).
