Today's criminal law/procedure cert grants

Issue summaries are from ScotusBlog, which links to papers:

  • Timbs v. Indiana: Whether the Eighth Amendment’s excessive fines clause is incorporated against the states under the Fourteenth Amendment.
  • Garza v. Idaho: Whether the “presumption of prejudice” recognized in Roe v. Flores-Ortega applies when a criminal defendant instructs his trial counsel to file a notice of appeal but trial counsel decides not to do so because the defendant’s plea agreement included an appeal waiver.
