Daire v. Lattimore, No. 12-55667 [February 9, 2016]

Daire v. Lattimore

En banc decision holding that in Glover v. United States, 531 U.S. 198 (2001), and Lafler v. Cooper, 132 S. Ct. 1376 (2012), the Supreme Court has clearly established that Strickland governs claims for ineffective assistance of counsel in noncapital sentencing proceeding. The Court overruled its own decisions that are to the contrary and return the case to the original three-judge panel for further proceedings.
