Inmate on death row challenges sentence because to Comedy Central video

Gabriel Hall was filmed as part of a Comedy Central roast by comedian Jeff Ross while in jail. His lawyers argue the tape violated his Sixth Amendment right to counsel. It is unlikely the Supreme Court will take up the case at its Jan. 6 conference, legal experts say. The unusual circumstances make the case less pressing for the nation’s highest court, an expert says. Texas Attorney General’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
