Errata and holiday scheduling
If you've stopped here looking for the Case Update, relax, it's right below this post. One of my legions of faithful readers pointed out that I'd screwed up the link for the case I'd mentioned regarding expungement on Friday (the one that says an uncounseled misdemeanor conviction is still a prior offense for purposes of the expungement statute.) I've corrected the post to reflect that, and here it is if you're too lazy to go back.
In addition to the Case Update, I'll be doing the customary What's Up in the 8th tomorrow, with rundown of significant cases from the Cuyahoga County Court of Appeals; if you want to learn the possible fate of the Lakewood Dog Park, you'll want to check it out. Wednesday I'll discuss two of the cases that came out of the Supreme Court last week, one dealing the "two-dismissal rule," and the other a criminal case that peaks in on the question of strict liability offenses. Thursday I'll take a look at the cases being argued in the Supreme Court this week, and on Friday I'll examine ineffective assistance of counsel claims.
And then, I'll be off until January 5.
