Attorney for exonerated man says lawsuit being considered

November 18, 2008


The attorney for 1 of the six people wrongly convicted in the 1985 rape and murder of a Beatrice woman says he'll contact the six to see if there's interest in filing a lawsuit against the state.

The 1985 case was the first time in Nebraska history that inmates have been freed based on DNA evidence.

Doug Stratton is attorney for Joseph White, 1 of the six exonerated people who served long prison sentences.

Attorney General Jon Bruning has said he will pursue full pardons for all six.
