Ind. Decisions - "Split Seventh Circuit panel decides Padilla v. Kentucky is not retroactive"
That heading from an entry today in the Sentencing Law Blog:
Interesting ruling today by a split Seventh Circuit panel today in Chaidez v. US, No. 10-3623 (7th Cir. Aug. 23, 2011). * * *
In the wake of this ruling on the heels of a contrary ruling by the Sixth Circuit, it would seem like the question going forward is not whether, but just when and how the Supreme Court will take up and resolve this issue.
