Ind. Decisions - One Indiana case today from 7th Circuit

In Gonzales v. Mize (ND Ind., Judge Springmann), a 23-page decision, Judge Kapala [The Honorable Frederick J. Kapala of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, sitting by designation] writes:

Argelio Gonzales, an Indiana state prisoner serving a 30-year sentence for various drug-related offenses, challenges the district court’s denial of his habeas corpus petition, 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On appeal, Gonzales argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel as a result of his trial counsel’s conflicts of interest. We affirm.
