Jeffrey Fisher is quoted in the Washington Post about the Supreme Court's decision against imposing the death penalty in a child rape case, Kennedy v. Louisiana:

Stanford law professor Jeffrey L. Fisher, who argued the case on Patrick Kennedy's behalf, had told the court that expanding the death penalty to include non-homicidal rape would separate the United States from other Western nations and align it with "only a sliver" of the world.
