An update for those people who have been interested in my certiorari petition in Herrera v. Oregon (the one that argues that the Jury Trial Clause, as incorporated against the states through the Fourteenth Amendment, should be read to require jury unanimity for a conviction in state court):
A. The Oregon Attorney General’s office has just filed its brief in opposition, in response to the Court’s call for a response.
B. I’ll be writing and filing our reply brief within the next 10 days or so.
C. I’m delighted to say that Prof. Kate Stith of Yale Law School has filed another amicus brief in support of our petition. Many thanks to Prof. Stith, and to Laura Graser, who was Prof. Stith’s lawyer on the brief.
