Sullivan v. Menard
By: Elizabeth Kruska
Not everyone spends a lot of time in criminal court. Even fewer people spend a lot of time handling post-conviction issues that arise. You’d think with the rise of true-crime series, like Making a Murderer or podcasts like Serial and Undisclosed(and all the eleventy jillion others out there; I kid, many of them are interesting) that everyone and their sister is somehow suddenly involved in filing habeas corpus and post-conviction relief cases. But that’s not exactly the case. And although we’ve got great lawyers handling post-conviction relief cases (I may be biased, many of them are my friends), it’s not always the buzz-worthy media-type cases that get filed.
