White v. Wheeler

Linked with:

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
14-1372 6th Cir. Not Argued Dec 14, 2015 n/a Per Curiam OT 2015

Holding: The Kentucky Supreme Court was not unreasonable in its application of federal law when it concluded that the trial court’s exclusion of a juror from a criminal trial, based on its conclusion that he could not give sufficient assurance of neutrality or impartiality in considering whether the death penalty should be imposed, did not violate the Sixth Amendment. The contrary determination of the court of appeals that excusing the juror in this case violated the Sixth Amendment contravenes controlling precedents of the Supreme Court.

Judgment: Summarily reversed in a per curiam opinion on December 14, 2015.
