Petition for certiorari denied on November 21, 2022
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
22-81 La. Ct. App. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2022

Issues: (1) Whether prejudice is required, and if so what prejudice counts, in determining which test applies to excessive sentencing-delay claims under the due process clause; and (2) whether, in a prosecution under a multi-count indictment on a common set of facts, the judgment becomes final for purposes of Griffith v. Kentucky when all counts are resolved, or defendants on direct appeal are instead required to seek certiorari from each count when other counts remain unresolved.
