Read Orby Dobbins – Eyewitness Testimony for the Prosecution called during the 2nd set of Scottsboro trials (Alabama v. Haywood Patterson in 1933).
Write a 1-2 page essay analyzing the reliability of Dobbins’s eye witness testimony from the second Scottsboro trial after the Powell Court reversed and remanded the convictions. In your analysis, apply at least 3 specific system or estimator variables as outlined by the NAS Report or the Henderson opinion to attack any potential weaknesses you find in Dobbins’s testimony regarding what he saw on the day the alleged rapes occurred. Please utilize the IRAC (Issue-Rule-Analysis-Conclusion) methodology for each of the 3 variables you select.
