Yesterday, we discussed CAAF’s grant of a Walters/Seider issue in United States v. Ross. We have now received a copy of NMCCA’s opinion in the case, which we’ve posted here. United States v. Ross, No. NMCCA 200800313 (N-M. Ct. Crim. App. Dec. 4, 2008) (per curiam).
This case effectively refutes some sniping in the comments section suggesting that the CCAs haven’t been sufficiently attentive to Walters/Seider issues. This case was originally submitted on the merits to NMCCA, which specified the Walters/Seider issue.
