Split Decisions


Just a quick note that the Third and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals denied petitions for rehearing in their respective cases dealing with Padilla retroactivity. It is notable that the denial in the Third Circuit came at the expense of the Government, which lost on appeal in seeking to block retroactive application of Padilla.

The Seventh Circuit is still considering whether to rehear its Padilla retroactivity case (Chaidez) and has asked for a response from the Government on the appellant’s request for rehearing.
