Daire v. Lattimore, No. 12-55667 [March 19, 2015]

Daire v. Lattimore

Affirmed where the claim was that evidence of mental illness should have been presented at a three-strikes sentencing. The court affirmed because the states court's finding that counsel was not ineffective for failing to present the evidence and that there was no prejudice from counsel actions was not an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law.

UPDATE: August 28, 2015 - The Court issued an order that this case be reheard en banc.
