Today's first petition of the day is:

Montejo v. Louisiana

Docket: 10-416
Issue(s): (1) Whether a defendant's Sixth Amendment waiver was invalid because it was based on the misrepresentations by police that he had not been appointed a lawyer; (2) whether a defendant's statements made after his apparent request for counsel should have been suppressed under Edwards v. Arizona; and (3) whether a law enforcement officer's conduct violates Edwards v. Arizona, where he explicitly expresses disappointment with a suspect after the suspect has made a clear invocation of the right to counsel.
