"The McCleskey case is famous because it spawned a 1987 Supreme Court case, McCleskey v. Kemp. In that case, evidence was proffered showing the death penalty in Georgia had a disparate impact on blacks because Georgia courts condemned blacks who killed whites four times as often as when the victim was black."
