Ind. Decisions - Still more on: Upcoming oral arguments this week

Remember, three oral arguments before the Supreme Court this morning, beginning at 9 AM.

Here is the ILB preview from Monday, and here are links to briefs in two of the cases.

To paraphrase some comments a reader has sent about the cases:

Mosley involves the issue of what should appointed counsel do when the issues on appeal are not strong? The court of appeals has encouraged Anders briefs, but will, or should, the supreme court go that way?

Henri involves important issues surrounding communications during jury deliberations. It may be a lively argument with questions about confiscating cell phones during deliberations, especially now that phones can do so much more. It will affect civil and criminal cases.
