An insider’s look at Maryland v. King

'It felt like one of those relatively few cases where the decision is in doubt during the argument.'

    With no disrespect to Mr. Shanmugam, one of the real shames of Maryland v. King is that the Public Defender felt the need to take the case away from the Supreme Court experienced Appellate Division Assistant Public Defender who represented Mr. King throughout his appeals and won the case in the Court of Appeals. I guess the Public Defender has no confidence in his own attorneys when it comes to the ‘big cases.’ How can he now expect current clients of the agency to feel that they are well represented? And how can he expect the agency’s attorneys to feel he believes them to be competent?
