Prade v. Ohio

Petition for certiorari denied on November 4, 2019
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-230 Ohio N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether, when there is newly discovered evidence making it more likely than not that, in a new trial, the defendant would be acquitted, it violates the 14th Amendment’s due process clause to deny a new trial based on Ohio’s uniquely elevated burden of proof in which criminal defendants with newly discovered evidence are granted a new trial only if they provide clear and convincing evidence that, in a new trial, they would be acquitted.
