Editor's Note :
In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year.

Issue: 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.
