Glebe v. Frost

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
14-95 9th Cir. Not Argued Nov 17, 2014 TBD TBD OT 2014

Holding: Even if, at Frost’s robbery trial, the state trial court violated the Constitution when it held that state law prohibited Frost from simultaneously contesting his liability and arguing duress during closing arguments, it was not clearly established that such a mistake constitutes a structural error requiring the automatic reversal of Frost’s conviction.
