Next week's criminal law/procedure arguments
Issue summaries are from ScotusBlog, which also links to papers:
- Boyer v. Louisiana: Whether a state’s failure to fund counsel for an indigent defendant for five years as a direct result of the prosecution’s choice to seek the death penalty should be weighed against the state for speedy trial purposes.
- Alleyne v. U.S.: Whether this Court’s decision in Harris v. United States, holding that the Constitution does not require facts which increase a mandatory minimum sentence to be determined by a jury, should be overruled.
