Boyer v. Louisiana - an unfortunate but predictable decision from the US Supreme Court

the United States Supreme Court dismissed its earlier writ grant on the issue of whether or not Louisiana's failure to adequately fund indigent defense, which resulted in a delay of over five years in bringing a capital case to trial, should be weighed against the State for speedy trial purposes. a standard 5-4 split with a stinging dissent from justice Sotomayor. http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/12pdfr/11-9953_4h25.pdf
