Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Washington v. Stenson
Issue(s): Whether undisclosed evidence is material because of a possibility that it would have led counsel to further investigate the prosecution’s case for potential exculpatory evidence, when the defendant does not show that such an investigation would have uncovered evidence creating a reasonable probability of a different verdict in light of the record as a whole.
