Back in October I wrote a comment on McCoy v. Louisiana, a case before the US Supreme Court in which a Louisiana death row inmate is arguing ineffective assistance of counsel because his lawyer conceded his guilt over the defendant's objection. During the argument Justice Sotomayor said the case sounded like a law school hypo. And she is right (for all the reasons I mentioned in my comment). Also, according to the ABA Journal, Justice Neil Gorsuch was among the justices who appeared to see merit in the defendant's case.
The ABA filed an amicus brief (see here).
The oral argument is available here.
Bloonberg Law has a story on the case here.
The New York Times has an article on the case here.
The SCotUS blog has a summary and analysis of the case here.
NPR's coverage of the case is here.
Above the Law has a post on the case here.
I am very interested in how the Court will decide this case and, particularly, how it will treat Florida v. Nixon. (Again, see my comment above).
UPDATE 1/26/18: Ethical Grounds has a comment on the case here.
