News that broke in The Situation Room: Michael Skakel, a cousin of the Kennedy's, will get a new trial after his 2002 conviction for killing neighbor Martha Moxley with a golf club in 1975.

“Although defense counsel’s errors of judgment and execution are not the fault of the state, a defendant’s constitutional right to adequate representation cannot be overshadowed by the inconvenience and financial and emotional cost of a new trial,” Judge Bishop wrote in his decision.
