Stein Center signatory on recent Amicus Brief

January 21, 2010

The Stein Center recently signed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court case Holland v. Florida. The Court has agreed to consider whether "gross negligence" by a state-appointed defense attorney in a death penalty case provides a basis for extending the time to file a federal habeas challenge. Oral arguments are scheduled to be heard on March 1, 2010.
