NACDL - Maryland v. Syed

Maryland v. Syed

Brief of Amici Curiae National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys' Association Regarding the State's Application for Leave to Appeal.

Brief filed: 09/15/2016

Documents

Maryland v. Syed

Court of Special Appeals of Maryland; Case No. 10432

Argument

The Court must hold the State to at least the same high standard that it applies to prisoners' § 7-109 applications. A prompt retrial is better calculated to promote public confidence in the Maryland criminal justice system. Amici urge the Court to deny the State's application for leave to appeal.
