Bidish Sarma, the Clinical Teaching Fellow and Lecturer in Residence, Death Penalty Clinic, at U.C. Berkeley School of Law, has the following request. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. His request:
For a cert petition in a Louisiana capital case coming off the state supreme court's denial of the direct appeal, we are considering raising a question arising from our conflict of interest claim. Our client and his two co-defendants were represented by attorneys working in the same indigent defense office in a rural area.
I'd be grateful to receive copies of cert petitions or names of cases in which conflict of interest issues have been raised to the Supreme Court since it decided Mickens v. Taylor in 2002.
