incoherency of counsel

From today's USA Today:

Arkansas

Friday, June 30
Little Rock - The Arkansas Supreme Court decided that a death row inmate who said his lawyer was drunk during an appeal proceeding should get another hearing. Justices recalled the court's mandate nearly 10 years ago upholding Ledell Lee's murder conviction. The court cited examples of the counsel "rambling incoherently, repeatedly interjecting 'blah, blah, blah' " into his remarks."
