Did anyone of you take part in the HLR write-on competition?
I did. Forever <3 Chaidez.
With me, I loved Chaidez--but it was only for a two night stand...
On a more serious note, I thought Justice Kagan did a great job with it.
2 nights? Wow you blasted through it eh?
I think Kagan is brilliant and I agree with the outcome there. However, the reasoning was way off in my view: we breached the chink free wall between collateral and direct consequences in Padilla but refused to embrace that distinction? Those seemed to be mutually exclusive to me? Also, don't you think that it's setting the stage for further expansion of 6th Amendment attorney's duties? Frye already got the ball rolling recently.
