Compton v. Texas

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
23-5682 Tex. Crim. App. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether a court’s comparison of generalizations about all the female prospective jurors who were struck by the prosecution with generalizations about the male jurors not struck by the prosecution, rather than a side-by-side analysis of individual jurors, disregards the basic equal protection principle that one discriminatory strike is too many; and (2) whether Texas exercised its peremptory strikes in a prohibited discriminatory fashion.
