Rippo v. Baker

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-6316 Nev. Not Argued Mar 6, 2017 n/a Per Curiam OT 2016

Holding: In reviewing Michael Rippo's application for state postconviction relief -- contending under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment that his trial judge, the target of a federal bribery probe, could not have impartially adjudicated the case -- the Nevada Supreme Court did not ask the question required by precedent: whether, considering all the circumstances alleged, the risk of bias was too high to be constitutionally tolerable.

Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on March 6, 2017.
