In Death by Deadline, The Marshall Project's Ken Armstrong reveals how a provision of a 1996 law intended to produce speedier executions has resulted in scores of condemned felons losing their chance for a federal appeal. Armstrong uncovered 80 cases where defense lawyers blew a filing deadline -- in most cases, costing their clients a chance to challenge the verdict or the sentence. The series brought a little-known issue to public attention and may lead to policy recommendations from the American Bar Association and outgoing U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder Jr.
