Brief filed: 12/24/2008


Vermont v. Brillon

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 08-88

Prior Decision

Case below 955 A.2d 1108 (Vt. 2008)


The decision of the Vermont Supreme Court should be affirmed. State and federal case law support charging the state with unreasonable delay of trial (Barker v. Wingo) when the defendant is forced to terminate his procrastinating public defenders more than once in a three year period.
