Relist Watch: And then there was one

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relist. Whatever the opposite of “status quo watch” is, that is what we have this week. In one remarkable day, the Supreme Court denied review to the 10 relisted firearm cases (over the dissenting opinion of Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justice Brett Kavanaugh and, somewhat surprisingly, no one else); the nine relisted qualified immunity cases (over the dissenting opinion of Thomas, who argued that “[b]ecause our [42 U.S.C.] §1983 qualified immunity doctrine ap...

Court sends case of Texas death-row inmate back for new look (Corrected)

The justices revived the case of Terence Andrus, a Texas inmate who was sentenced to death for the 2008 shootings of two people during an attempted carjacking in a grocery-store parking lot. The lawyer who was appointed to defend Andrus didn’t meet with him for almost eight months, and then only met with him outside of court six times in roughly four years; the lawyer admits that he did not do any work until just before jury selection began. At the trial, the lawyer did not present any evidence ...

By a vote of 6-3, SCOTUS finds deficient performance in Texas capital case and remands on prejudice issue

A dozen years ago, I wrote a full law review article to express my grumpiness about the felt reality that the Supreme Court often seems to care a whole lot more about cases involving persons sentenced to death than about just about any other criminal defendants.  That article is on my mind this morning upon seeing the 19-page per curiam decision that Supreme Court released in Andrus v. Texas, No. 18–9674 (S. Ct. June 15, 2020) (available here).  The defendant in this case, Terence Andrus, killed...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. Even as the world grows more topsy-turvy by the , the Supreme Court’s relists this week are heavily a status quo affair. The gun cases are still there. The qualified immunity cases are still there. And the two ancient serial relists Andrus v. Texas and United States v. California inexplicably shuffle back for yet another curtain call this week, a trip they’ve been making almost weekly since November 2019 and January 2020, respectively. If we needed any furt...

Mission Creep Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists, as well as some released holds. Because of the demands of my day job, I’m a little late with this installment. But what this post lacks in timeliness it more than makes up for in sheer tediousness. There were no new relists last week, so I hope you didn’t come here looking for success stories about last week’s bunch. And the two serial relists, Andrus v. Texas, 18-9674, and United States v. California, 19-532, seem to be returning on an endless loop. But tha...
