Arizona v. Martin

Petition for certiorari denied on May 18, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-605 Ariz. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the respondent in this case.

Issue: Whether, when a jury expressly states it is “unable to agree” on a defendant’s guilt for a greater offense and convicts the defendant of a lesser offense, and the defendant successfully appeals his conviction, the hung-jury rule permits retrial of the greater offense or Green v. United States instead bars retrial of that offense.
