BEOS ruling from Indian court

The Stanford Center for Law and Biosciences has decided to leave the WordPress servers for greener pastures: namely, the Stanford Law School blog aggregator.

Below, you can download the full ruling in the murder case covered by the International Herald Tribune and New York Times earlier this fall, notable for the prosecution’s use of the “Brain Electrical Oscillations Signature test,” (BEOS) to  confirm that one defendant had “experiential knowledge” of the crime.  Two persons were convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison. (It is also available at the blog of Anand Giridharadas, the reporter who covered the story.)

We at the CLB are working on our response to the ruling, but we post it here in advance of our thoughts so interested persons may have a chance to read it for themselves first.  Watch this space for our analysis of the opinion and the BEOS technology described therein.  — Emily Murphy
