Yesterday's criminal law/procedure cert grants

Issue summaries are from ScotusBlog, which also links to papers:

  • Turner v. United States and Overton v. United StatesWhether the petitioners’ convictions must be set aside under Brady v. Maryland, 373 U. S. 83 (1963).
  • Lee v. United StatesWhether it is always irrational for a noncitizen defendant with longtime legal resident status and extended familial and business ties to the United States to reject a plea offer notwithstanding strong evidence of guilt when the plea would result in mandatory and permanent deportation.
