Ind. Courts - Whether SCOTUS will grant cert in Manzano v. Indiana now announced

Updating earlier ILB posts, the SCOTUS has now denied cert in the Indiana case of Manzano v. State. (SCOTUSblog case page here)

This post today
on SCOTUSblog notes:

The order denying cert. in Manzano v. Indiana, 14-631 — which asked whether, when a criminal defendant seeks to vacate a guilty plea on the ground of ineffective assistance of counsel, the defendant must establish prejudice by showing that he would have been acquitted — was tersely annotated, “Justice Sotomayor dissents.”
