"Shaken Baby Syndrome" and the Inertia of Injustice

  • Aired: 10/09/2014

  • Rating: TV-G
Deborah Tuerkheimer, Professor of Law, Northwestern University School of Law, challenges the diagnosis of “shaken baby syndrome” which has led to convictions in court cases. Tuerkheimer focuses on biomechanical research which indicates that the diagnosis is less certain than had once been accepted and therefore the American justice system needs to make corrections based on this information.
