White v. United States

Petition granted, judgment vacated, and case remanded for further consideration in light of the confession of error by the Solicitor General in his brief for the United States filed on November 10, 2017.
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-270 6th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Disclosure: Vinson & Elkins LLP, whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioner in this case.

Issue: Whether, under the Speedy Trial Act, time engaged in a plea negotiation that does not result in a finalized plea agreement is automatically excludable as “other proceedings concerning the defendant” under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(1), as four circuits hold; or whether such time is excludable only if the district court makes case-specific “ends of justice” findings under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7), as four other circuits hold.
