NY Court of Appeals Rejects Defendant's Bid to Withdraw From Murder Plea Deal Because Terms Weren't Understood | New York Law Journal

Is a plea "knowingly and voluntarily" entered if it isn't understood? NY appellate Court weighs in.

Associate Judge Jenny Rivera wrote in the dissent that it was the first time the Court of Appeals has addressed such a question of what standards should apply to a plea agreement that the defendant claimed to not have completely understood.

Cases like Loving v. Virginia is why the law, at its finest, is awesome.

Wednesday marked 52 years since the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Loving v. Virginia, which changed American history forever and paved the way for marriage equality in 2015.

We must also never forget that the Virginia Supreme Court once upheld this racist ban on interracial marriage and ruled that the state was obligated “to preserve the racial integrity of its citizens” and to prevent “the corruption of blood” and “the obliteration of racial pride.” We can't move forward without remembering this shameful chapter of our history.

SCOTUS rules 6-3 for inmate on ineffective assistance; dissent implies Gideon was wrongly decided

An attorney's duty to effectively represent his client includes filing an appeal even in cases where there was a waiver.

An appeal waiver is not an absolute bar to all appellate claims, Sotomayor said. The language of appeal waivers can vary widely, and some leave many types of claims unwaived. Prosecutors may also forfeit or waive the waiver. And some waivers can be challenged; an unknowing or involuntary waiver is not enforced, for example.

“Accordingly, a defendant who has signed an appeal waiver does not, in directing counsel to file a notice of appeal, necessarily undertake a quixotic or frivolous quest,” Sotomayor said.

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh joined with Supreme Court liberals on Wednesday in ruling for an Idaho inmate who claimed ineffective assistance by his lawyer.

Virginia Lawyers Weekly:
VSB Council urges beefed-up ethics rule for prosecutors
By: Peter Vieth March 5, 2019

The Virginia State Bar Council says a prosecutor has an ethical duty to point out any known exculpatory evidence in a large document dump in a criminal case. Bar leaders are urging the Supreme Court of Virginia to make that duty clear with language in lawyers’ ethics rules.
The added language is designed to address a “needle in a haystack” situation when a prosecutor turns over voluminous information in a criminal case. A comment to Rule 3.8 of the Rules of Professional Conduct would tell prosecutors they must disclose any particular exculpatory evidence in the package if they know of such evidence.
The VSB governing body on Feb. 23 recommended the change by a vote of 47-13 over objections of prosecutors who opposed the draft comment produced by the bar’s ethics committee.
The rulemaking process was sparked by a complaint that a prosecutor had failed to disclose a single favorable dialogue in a 200-hour batch of jailhouse phone recordings produced in a criminal case.
As approved by the Bar Council, the rule comment would state: “Once the prosecutor knows particular evidence is exculpatory, the prosecutor must timely identify and disclose that evidence.”
The language approved on a Saturday gathering at Richmond’s Omni Hotel was opposed by representatives of Virginia prosecutors, including Bar Council member C. Phillips Ferguson, the Suffolk commonwealth’s attorney.
Ferguson said production of a batch of information was equivalent to disclosure of any exculpatory information contained in the batch. He urged the bar to make the proposed comment aspirational only.
Earlier, Michael R. Doucette – executive director of the Virginia Association of Commonwealth’s Attorneys – criticized the vague wording of the ethics committee’s proposal.
“It is so watered down, I have absolutely no idea what it means,” Doucette said. “We’re inviting all sorts of disciplinary litigation, and we’re going to swamp bar counsel with this.
But Eric M. Page, chair of the VSB Standing Committee on Legal Ethics, pressed for approval of the rule comment.
“Every prosecutor who has weighed in on this, especially the ones who attended our meetings, agreed unequivocally that it would be unethical to hide a needle in a haystack. It is inconceivable to me why this simple and clear comment cannot be embraced by prosecutors,” Page said.
Resistance came from the other direction at one point in the meeting. Criminal defense litigator John K. Zwerling said the proposed comment language was “weak and wishy-washy.”
“I have seen some awful things in the last three years,” Zwerling said, referring to allegations of prosecutorial misconduct.
The Bar Council strengthened the comment language after the discussion. Removed were three sentences explaining that sufficient disclosure is dependent on circumstances, without offering examples. The operative sentence was modified to say that whatever particular evidence is deemed exculpatory must be timely disclosed.
The proposed comment goes to the Supreme Court of Virginia for consideration.
