Documents

Hunton v. Sinclair

9th Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 12-35363

Prior Decision

Decision below Case No. CV-06-0054-FVS (Hon. Fred Van Sickle), 2012 WL 1409608 (E.D. Wash. 2012).

Argument(s)

En Banc review is appropriate because the majority’s decision conflicts with the underlying rationale and holding of this court in Nguyen v. Curry. En Banc review is appropriate because the application of Martinez to Brady claims presents a question of exceptional importance.
