"The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to settle a dispute among lower
courts on whether to give more immigrants the benefit of a ruling that
requires their lawyers to advise them more clearly on what can happen if
they plead guilty to a crime. At issue in the new case of Chaidez v. United States (11-820) is the potential retroactivity of the Court’s 2010 ruling in Padilla v. Kentucky." - SCOTUSblog, Apr. 30, 2012.
[Click here for the briefs, etc. Disappointing, to say the least, that the SG weighs in on the wrong side.]
Mr. Peabody and Sherman use the Wayback Machine to determine Padilla retroactivity!
