The federal death penalty at the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is the court of last resort for death row inmates around the country. The vast majority of death row inmates are convicted and sentenced under state death penalty laws, and so most of the capital appeals that the court reviews concern state statutes. The federal death penalty is given in a small number of cases and carried out in even fewer. As a result, the history of the court’s interaction with federal capital appeals is brief, although the Department of Justice has recently...

Is it fair that seniors get tested more often by the DMV?

Q. Dear Honk: This month I will turn 72 and am required to take a written test and an eye exam in order to get my license renewed. Why does California discriminate against seniors by having them take the written test every five years after they reach 70? It seems to me that those who should be required to take the test are those of any age who have been involved in accidents or have been issued tickets for driving infractions. In fact, the only ticket I ever received was in the ’70s, and I’ve ne...

Under the law, what is the definition of going slow?

Q. Honk: I have a question regarding the “move over” law that requires a driver to move to an adjacent lane if possible, or if not, to slow down when encountering a stopped emergency vehicle with flashing lights on a shoulder. If you’re on a freeway/highway going at a relatively high rate of speed, but there is no opportunity to move over, how slow is slow enough? Someone I know was in that situation and slowed down, but she received a ticket because she didn’t slow down enough. What’s enough? A...

Opinion analysis: Defense lawyer’s refusal to file requested appeal constitutes ineffective assistance, despite defendant’s appeal waiver

When a defense lawyer decides not to file an appeal of a guilty plea despite his client’s request, he renders ineffective assistance of counsel, even if the client waived his right to appeal in the plea agreement, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in Garza v. Idaho. In a 6-3 majority opinion, Justice Sonia Sotomayor held that the presence of an appeal waiver did not render the Supreme Court’s 2000 decision in Roe v. Flores-Ortega inapplicable, as the Idaho Supreme Court had ruled below. Flores-Ort...
