Noguera v. Davis, No. 17-99010 (7-20-21)(Bade w/Graber;  incurrence and dissent by Thomas). The 9th affirmed relief on a capital sentencing IAC. Counsel failed to develop mitigation. The majority reversed relief on the guilt/innocence phase, finding no conflict with counsel having represented other witnesses. Thomas dissented on this claim.

Congrats to Emily Groendyke and Celeste Bacchi, Deputy Federal Defenders, Cal Central (L.A.).
