Supreme Court's Bad Decision on DNA Testing

I thought the Supreme Court decision that there is not a necessary right to DNA testing was bad, and Ed Brayton does a good job of showing how bad it is.

Matthew Yglesias agrees and ends with this statement:

"The two cases handed down yesterday are just two new additions to the trend observed by Jeffrey Toobin, “in every major case since he became the nation’s seventeenth Chief Justice, Roberts has sided with the prosecution over the defendant, the state over the condemned, the executive branch over the legislative, and the corporate defendant over the individual plaintiff.” That’s conservative jurisprudence in a nutshell."
