According to the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, they have hired Barry Scheck,Brendan Sullivan and Richard Emery. The Complaint alleges that the criminal case was “one of the most chilling episodes of premeditated police, prosecutorial and scientific misconduct in modern American history.” Hans Poppe
