Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether the “presumption of prejudice” recognized in Roe v. Flores-Ortega applies where a criminal defendant instructs his trial counsel to file a notice of appeal but trial counsel decides not to do so because the defendant’s plea agreement included an appeal waiver.
