The petition of the day is:

17-1241

Issues: (1) Whether exculpatory evidence that is inadmissible can be material under Brady v. Maryland; and (2) whether a court evaluating the materiality of suppressed evidence under Brady against a confession should take into account a post-trial judicial finding that the defendant was an intellectually disabled child.
