New Filing: Daniels v. Washington

Today the Stanford Law School Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, along with Akin Gump and Howe & Russell, is filing this cert. petition in Daniels v. Washington. At issue in the case is whether the Double Jeopardy Clause prohibits retrial on a charge when the jury is instructed to begin deliberations with the most serious charge but proceed to a less serious charge if it cannot agree, and the jury finds the defendant guilty of a less serious offense without returning a verdict on the more serious one . Jeff Fisher is counsel of record and led the Stanford team with the able assistance of clinic students John Dalton, Brian Goldman, and David Owens.
