Rodriguez v. Montgomery, No. 06-3995

By FindLaw Staff on February 05, 2010 3:07 PM

District court's grant of defendant's petition for collateral relief is reversed and remanded where, because the record would not support a conclusion that going to trial with only one lawyer had a substantial and injurious effect on the outcome, the state judiciary's erroneous decision to disqualify defendant's second lawyer was harmless.
