Eric Johnson

Scholarship Impact
Criminal Law and Procedure
In Wilkerson v. State, __ P.3d __ (Oct. 31, 2014), the Wyoming Supreme Court relied on a 2007 law review article by Professor Eric Johnson in abandoning 28 years of Wyoming precedent on the subject of second-degree murder. The court said: "After careful consideration, we are forced to agree with the conclusion that the definition of malice contained in our precedent since Crozier [v. State, 723 P.2d 42 (Wyo. 1986)] does not adequately describe and delimit the crime of second-degree murder. On this point, we agree with Professor Johnson's analysis[.]"
