UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 22, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
CHAD MARKS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: David G. Larimer United States District Judge
On March 21, 2012, the Supreme Court decided two cases, Lafler v. Cooper and Missouri v. Frye, dealing with ineffective assistance of counsel in the failure to communicate plea offers to a defendant.
I ask defense counsel to submit a legal memorandum within twenty-one (21) days of the filing of this order as to the effect, if any, of these cases on the case involving defendant Chad Marks. The Government must respond thereafter within fourteen (14) days.
Defense counsel, in its submission, may also reply to the Government's earlier memorandum and brief in opposition to the petition on the basis of ineffective assistance of counsel (Dkt. #398).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
