Pro bono client wins Seventh Circuit appeal on Sixth Amendment grounds

Clients Washington, Rodney

On behalf of a pro bono client, Jones Day successfully appealed an adverse ruling in a habeas corpus case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. The Seventh Circuit agreed that the client was entitled to a new trial because the trial court's refusal to let him represent himself violated his constitutional rights under the Sixth Amendment.
