Chamberlin v. Hall

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-6286 5th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether a court reviewing a Batson claim may consider reasons distinguishing stricken jurors from those accepted by the prosecutor when the distinguishing factor was not cited in the trial court as the basis for the prosecutor’s decision; and (2) whether the evidence in the state court record, including the prosecutor’s starkly disparate strike pattern, failure to conduct individual voir dire, and the comparative juror analysis showing the implausibility of the prosecutor’s proffered reasons for striking two African-American panelists, supported the federal district court’s grant of habeas relief.
