pending issues

This area of our site is dedicated to tracking pending issues in both the California and United States Supreme Court.

We cover pending issues of interest to counsel concerning criminal, juvenile, dependency, and mental health law, as well as capturing cases and issues addressing relevant procedures, practices and ethics for lawyers.

We do not cover death cases with only penalty issues pending, nor death-case specific issues that would not be of interest to appellate appointed counsel for non-death cases. Attorneys should consult with California Appellate Project - San Francisco (external link) for current death penalty-specific resources.
