Thaler v. Haynes

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
09-273 5th Cir. Not Argued Feb 22, 2010 9-0 Per Curiam OT 2009

Holding: Without hearing oral argument, the Court summarily reversed a lower court decision that appeared to hold that a trial judge must find that a prosecutor dismissed a jury for a discriminatory (and therefore unconstitutional) reason, when the only justification the prosecutor can give for the dismissal was based on the demeanor of the juror, but the trial judge resolving the challenge to the dismissal did not personally observe the juror.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on February 22, 2010.
