Sims v. Eighth Judicial District Court (Glass) - defense counsel may introduce independent competency evaluations during a competency hearing.

Scarbo v. Eighth Judicial District Court (Glass) - a defendant is entitled to full and complete copies of a court-appointed examiners' competency reports prior to a competency hearing.  The Court also notes that defense counsel are entitled to communicate the court appointed competency examiners.

Both of these are important defense victories.  Congrats to Howard Brooks, Christy Craig and the other attorneys from the Public Defender's Office who worked on these writs.

Allstate Insurance Co. v. Fackett - insurance policies for injury to uninsured third parties.
