Issue: Whether, when a criminal defendant seeks to vacate a guilty plea on the ground that defense counsel rendered ineffective assistance, in order to establish prejudice the defendant must show that but for counsel’s errors he would not have pleaded guilty and would have insisted on going to trial (as this Court, all twelve federal circuits, and virtually all the states hold), or whether the defendant must also show that had he gone to trial he would have been acquitted (as the Indiana Supreme Court persists in holding).

Can modern art shed new light on landmark Supreme Court rulings? A recent book says yes. Artist Xavier Cortada created 10 paintings depicting SCOTUS cases, and scholars used the paintings to re-examine each case's legacy. Here's @amanda_frost1's review:

#SCOTUS issued a Friday-night order outlining specific questions for inmate John Ramirez & Texas to address in their briefing in his case, which is scheduled for argument in November. The Court put Ramirez's execution on hold earlier this week: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/091021zr_ap6c.pdf
