Newman’s Polygraph Appeal Selected as “Class Action”

The South Carolina Supreme Court announced this week that CSA attorney Graham Newman’s appeal in the case of State v. Kendra Samuel had been selected as the Court’s “Class Action” for the January term of 2015. The Supreme Court, under the leadership of Chief Justice Jean Toal, began the “Class Action” program in 2003 in order to invite middle and high school students to the Court to view oral arguments in a pre-selected case, engage the Court in a Q&A session immediately subsequent to oral argument, and take a tour of the Court’s facilities. The program has received wide acclaim from both the Bar and the public.

Newman’s appeal centers upon whether a jury, in a criminal trial, must be permitted to consider the fact that a confession was procured in the course of a polygraph, even though polygraph evidence is generally deemed inadmissible due to its scientific unreliability.

Graham Newman’s practice focuses upon complex litigation, including appeals in both state and federal court. He has been a practicing attorney for ten years.
