When IQ Tests Become Relevant...

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned the death sentence of a double murderer, agreeing with defense lawyers who said the man shouldn't be executed because he is mentally retarded.
The court ruled unanimously in favor of convicted killer Clifton White of Akron, citing the 2002 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that executing the mentally retarded violates the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
That test requires a low IQ generally under 70...

Yes in thousands of court cases every year the application of IQ tests determine the course of Criminal Justice in case after case.
The military uses them, corporations use them, schools use them (gifted programs) and the government uses them. And the results determine the course of events in the possible futures of the test takers, as well as the Fate and Fortunes of those around them.
