Amicus curiae brief of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers in support of Respondent.

Brief filed: 08/27/2008


Waddington v. Sarausad

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 07-772

Prior Decision

Opinion below 479 F.3d 671


Jury instructions may be a “formally correct” statement of state law and still be so ambiguous as to be misleading; court below correctly determined that the instructions deprived the defendant of his constitutional right to have a jury determine every element of the charged offense of aiding and abetting murder.
