Hear the Nov. 12 debate on WHYY's "Radio Times" program, hosted by Marti Moss-Coane, over the question:  Mumia Abu-Jamal Get a Fair Trial?

Dave Lindorff is the author of the book <em>Killing Time: An Investigation into the Death Penalty Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal</em> (Common Courage Press, 2003).  

John Hayden, a private attorney and former county prosecutor from New York, is the author of a self-published book, <em>Mumia Abu-Jamal: Patron Saint of American Cop Killers</em>.

Abu-Jamal, who has spent 26 years on Pennsylvania's Death Row, is currently awaiting the decision of a three-judge panel of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, which is considering three appeals by him of his conviction and appeals process, alleging constitutional violations, including racial bias in jury selection, improper statement to the jury by the prosecutor in his final summation, and bias against the defense on the part of the trial judge. The panel is also considering an appeal by the Philadelphia District Attorney of a 2001 decision by a federal judge overturning Abu-Jamal's death penalty.
