Breakdown of the Supreme Court: Side for Government: Roberts, Scalia, Alito & Thomas Side for the Defense: Sotomayor(?), Kagan(?), Ginsberg & Breyer Could go either way: Kennedy How a Case Gets to SC: Writ of Certiorari: State/Federal cases picked up by SC Writ of Habeus Corpus: two surnames (one of the names is the warden at the prison) Terms: Per Curium: All 9 Justices agree & one writes the opinion Collateral Attack: Writ of Habeus Corpus - moves sideways from State to Federal court. POWELL The defendant has a fundamental right to counsel in federal cases. Appointed attorney must be given enough time to make an effective defense BETTS v. BRADY Cites Powell, but concludes the opposite - counsel is not a fundamental right. Dissent: Black, Douglas & Murphy - Black: the 14th makes it applicable to the states GIDEON v. WAINWRIGHT Black: If it’s fundamental under the 14th (Due Process), it’s applicable to the states. 21 States wrote Amicus Briefs against Betts and for Powell Later applied to misdemeanors (anything facing jail time) Ω SCOTT v. ILLINOIS (BAD CASE) Rule: Your right to counsel is only violated when you’re denied counsel & taken into custody. BAD because if you didn’t get jail on your first offence, it’s pretty much mandatory on second offence/conviction. Might as well have been jailed on the first one ALABAMA v. SHELTON Suspended sentence, denied counsel, violates probation, jail time - violates 6th Amendment All unnecessary if Scott had been decided correctly. Ω CURRENT “BRIGHT LINE” RULE: Must be charged with a crime. Were indigent Requested attorney Denied attorney Convicted & Incarcerated Then, you need not show prejudice to get a reversal. U.S. v. GONZALEZ-LOPEZ Later case expanded this right to include out-of-state counsel. If denied, they need not show prejudice to get a reversal KIRBY Right to counsel only begins when the state begins “adversarial judicial process” - arraignment (lineup before this didn’t require an attorney)

Indictment by grand jury FARETTA ∆ has the right to reject his right to counsel MALLOY v. HOGAN Carried right to counsel to the states. LEGAL FALLACIES There is nothing in the Bill of Rights that states that a jury must be comprised of twelve. That’s assumed, but the courts have decided that it’s no fewer than six. The Constitution does not require a unanimous jury, either. For some states, it only requires a majority. “Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” isn’t in the Constitution, but it is inherent in Due Process. ROTHGERY Right to counsel kicks in at first court appearance because he was looking at being held by the government Ω First court appearance triggers Right to Counsel Ω Grand jury indictment also triggers PEOPLE v. LOPEZ California case that requires the judge to go through a dialogue with a defendant looking to represent himself (see handout) INDIANA v. EDWARDS ∆ can be competent to stand trial but not competent enough to represent himself. SC allowed Indiana to set their own standard for self-representation RULE ∆ can refuse counsel if he does so knowingly and willingly and has been found competent to stand trial STRICKLAND “Ineffective assistance of counsel” (IAC) doesn’t necessarily play if the attorney made a strategy call that ∆ didn’t like (Fun fact: Strickland was the warden in this habeus case. ∆’s name was Washington) O’Conner said to show IAC, ∆ must show: 1. Must show that counsel representation fell below an objective standard of reasonableness 2. Must show prejudice - a reasonable probability that, but for professional errors, there would have been a different result in the case Note: There is a significant difference between claiming IAC (must show prejudice) & Denial of Counsel 6th Amendment violation (no prejudice) ROMPILLA Counsel accused of missing potentially mitigating information in ∆’s file (5-4) was IAC (Extremely speculative).
