No action taken in Nevada v. Harte

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

The Washoe County DA's Office has filed a petition for certiorari with the US Supreme Court in Nevada v. Harte.  The case presents a challenge to the Nevada Supreme Court's ruling in McConnell v. State, which held that the State may not obtain aggravating circumstances for burglary, robbery and other underlying felonies if the defendant is found guilty only under a felony-murder theory.  The US Supreme Court listed the case on its conference agenda for last Friday, May 14, but no decision was made on the petition.  It is again listed for conference this Friday.  This may be an indication that the Court is interested in the issue.  It's likely that the order from Friday's conference will be released next Monday.
