Retraction: ‘Federal Habeas Corpus: The Savings Clause Remedy for Federal Prisoners’ by Dale Chappell

We are writing to inform our readers about a serious error regarding the above-titled Column published in the February 2024 issue of Criminal Legal News. We are retracting the Column in its entirety. We sincerely apologize for any confusion the publication of this Column may have caused.

By the date of publication, the Column was already outdated due to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Jones v. Hendrix, 143 S. Ct. 1857 (2023), and thus misrepresented the state of the law. Notably, the Column was, in fact, current when submitted by the writer to Criminal Legal News. However, due to a series of failures involving our internal controls and editorial workflow, the Column languished for several months before eventually being published in an untimely manner.

Our Senior Managing Editor, Richard Resch, accepts full responsibility for this grave error and deeply regrets the failure to satisfy the established editorial standards of Criminal Legal News. Clearly, our internal quality controls failed in this instance. We have undertaken a thorough review of them and implemented numerous improvements to ensure that something like this never occurs again.

Criminal Legal News is committed to upholding the highest standards of journalistic integrity and providing our readers with accurate and reliable legal information. We value your continued support and will do our utmost to continue to earn the trust you place in Criminal Legal News.
