Supreme Court Won’t Disturb Ban on Death Row Interviews

The Supreme Court will not tinker with a federal prison policy that prohibits death row inmates from giving face-to-face interviews to reporters.

The justices turned down an appeal from David Paul Hammer, an inmate on the federal government’s death row in Terre Haute, Ind. Hammer argued that the policy adopted after Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh appeared on “60 Minutes” in March 2000 is an unconstitutional violation of his free speech rights.
