Waiver of privilege when claiming ineffective assistance -- Jones v. United States
Previously I have written about the USDC - Eastern District of Missouri considering the scope of waiver when a criminal defendant claims ineffective assistance of counsel. The District Court held a hearing on March 7, and directed that post-trial briefs should be filed by April 6. Thus, we should have an answer soon.
The case is Jones v. United States, Case No. 4:11CV702 (E.D. Mo.)
