|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.
