For the past six years, pro bono lawyers at Davis, Polk & Wardwell in New York have worked on behalf of a mentally retarded client on Georgia's death row who was convicted of a double homicide and robbery. On Wednesday, the Davis Polk team ¿ associates Hayward H. Smith and Andrew B. Dean, partner James W.B. Benkard and senior counsel Ogden N. Lewis ¿ prevailed in a habeas petition before the Superior Court of Butts County, winning a new trial for Larry Jenkins and sparing his life.
