Harvey v. Florida

Petition for certiorari denied on October 7, 2019
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-1449 Fla. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether the Florida Supreme Court’s decision denying retroactive application of the Hurst decisions to the petitioner violates the Eighth and 14th Amendments because it uses an arbitrary cut-off point and other arbitrary factors—such as the timing of judicial decisions—to determine whether similarly situated death row prisoners will receive retroactive application of constitutional rights.
