Next week's criminal law/procedure argument

Issue summary is from ScotusBlog, which also links to papers:

  • Weaver v. MassachusettsWhether a defendant asserting ineffective assistance that results in a structural error must, in addition to demonstrating deficient performance, show that he was prejudiced by counsel's ineffectiveness, as held by four circuits and five state courts of last resort; or whether prejudice is presumed in such cases, as held by four other circuits and two state high courts.
