"New court ruling about eyewitness IDs delays murder case": Today's edition of The Salt Lake Tribune contains an article that begins, "Friday's Utah Supreme Court decision essentially mandating expert testimony about the pitfalls of eyewitness identification has had an immediate impact."

In coverage of that ruling, last Saturday's edition of The Salt Lake Tribune reported that "Murder conviction nixed; Ruling to allow eyewitness experts' testimony overturns guilty verdict."

And last Saturday's edition of The Deseret News reported that "High court orders new trial in S.L. murder case."
