On April 18, 2023, a judge assigned to the Simmons case, Amy Palumbo of the Oklahoma County District Court in Oklahoma City, was scheduled to take a fresh look at the evidence. After that, Palumbo would decide whether to vacate the original sentence and free Simmons outright or demand a new trial based on constitutional errors from the first trial in 1975.
